[UPDATE: Apparently I was a little bit late at noticing. See here for a news article on the subject dated October 15th.]
Only a week ago, my GMail account had an allocation of less than 3GB. Two days ago it crossed the 3GB line, and now it's almost 3.5GB.
Call me crazy, but I think there is something behind this. Is Google about to (at last!) remove the "Beta" label from this great product? Are they about to take over some big data storage firm?
What's up big G ? You're up to something, I know it...
