If you need to send a file from point A to point B, it’s email – not DropBox or Google Drive – that you tend to use. But this isn’t great for large files. As Senator Ted Stevens once pointed out, the Internet is a series of tubes, and most providers have rules to stop you from them clogging up.
But today, Google announced it doubled the size of attachments you can receive through Gmail, with the maximum size raised from 25MB to 50MB. Annoyingly, the maximum size for an outbound attachment is still 25MB.
