Let's keep it real for a minute - nobody uses Yahoo Mail for anything other than their spam accounts. You know, the email address you use when you're filling out surveys, commenting on blogs, or signing up for a message board. An email address that you don't check often, one that you don't mind getting spammed.

After Google's Gmail blew into town a few years ago it quickly became the defacto web-based email of choice. Meaning if you are still primarily using Yahoo Mail, it's because it's tied to your Flickr account, your Yahoo Fantasy team, or because you're one of those people who think your friends are too retarded to change their email address book if you ever, OMG, moved on with your life.

Yesterday Yahoo did the only thing they had left in their arsenal - to give it all away. Last night they announced that if you are using Yahoo mail, you will have as much free storage as you can handle, forever.

We'll be keeping our eyes out on those smartasses who will now use their Yahoo accounts to store their MP3s and Paris Hilton videos.
