Amazon’s SimpleDB question

Amazon’s SimpleDB question: lets say you have a unique ID and a number of indexes on that, perhaps 6. How many rows will fit in one container (= 10 GB)? MySQL’s table limit is derived from the OS and is often 2 Gigs, if I’m not mistaken. So are we saying that a SimpleDB “table” can be then about 5 times larger? That doesn’t seem much of a win… Am I missing something?

Google is finally removing RSS feeds from their search results. Good. They’re leaving in feeds with enclosures (podcast feeds) because it seems a lot of them don’t have an associated html page (podcasting’s history is to blame for this).
