A new Gmail Bug: Gmail takes more space than the attachments

This is a new strange bug of Gmail noticed by Steven Schofield. It is the attachments take more storage than they should. He says, “one of my Gmail accounts used 1567 MB of storage. I composed a new message, attached a file that had about 8.42 MB and saved it as a draft. Gmail's footer message was: "You are currently using 1590 MB (21%) of your 7479 MB.", It takes three times more storage for my message”. Then, I’ve discarded the message and Gmail informed me I was using 1579 MB. Therefore, I lost about 12 MB after composing a message and deleting it, he added.

After that, he had composed another message and sent the file to an E-mail Address. However, Gmail used 23 MB to send the file that is only 8.42MB in size. Then, he lost 12MB again after deleting it. The most likely explanation about the bug is that Gmail’s Flash Uploader creates hidden messages for each of the files you upload. At the same time, the temporary messages were sent to the trash. Now, they are no longer displayed on the trash.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications.

The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou…
