Not an improvement, really

I see from google’s big announcement today that Gmail is now equipped with some imaginary storage limit, plus all sorts of new features. Some of these features, like Picasa integration, seem sort of neat. I’ve never used Picasa, but I can imagine it might be fun, if I shared lots of photos with a network of hipster friends and grandparents and such. But Google, did you have to add colors and fonts? Was the Public really clamoring for comic sans everywhere?
