 Post subject: Google to launch 'GDrive' - [5GB FREE Online Storage!]
New postPosted: Wed Apr 18, 2012 11:30 am 

Details are here on the Daily Mail Website if anyone is interested ......

"Google will launch 'GDrive', an online storage service that will store large files online instead of in PC hard drives 'mid next week'.
The leak came from a Google source speaking to blog 'The Next Web'.
The service will offer 5GB of storage, and appear as an icon on Windows and Mac desktops into which users simply 'drop' files.
The service will be a rival to services such as Dropbox, a 'cloud' storage start-up recently valued at $4 billion."

While this is ok, but SkyDrive by MS trump over GDrive @ 25GB FREE, and everything is integrated, Google have services that are scattered all over the place. Gmail 10GB, useless waste of space, Picasa 1GB, unbelievably too small, etc... Why not just combine 10GB Gmail + 5GB GDrive, + 1GB Picasa = 16GB Free as a AIO?

I failed to comprehend Google's motive, and there is no reason to waste money on a larger drive. Again, MS trump over GDrive. Just MHO.

Sorry for the hating... LOL

I'm just grateful of all the free storage i've got this week! 30GB for free! Note that Google has unlimited storage for Google+ and photos under 2048px x 2048px do not count towards the 1GB limit for Picasa.
