Yesterday, Google announced a new, and exciting, feature for those who use its Microsoft Office alternative Google Docs; free cloud storage of large, non-office file-types. Google explains, “Instead of emailing files to yourself, which is particularly difficult with large files, you can upload to Google Docs any file up to 250 MB… Combined with shared folders, you can store, organize, and collaborate on files more easily using Google Docs.” Your Docs account will have a 1GB quota, and for those of your who eat GB’s for breakfast, extra storage can be purchased at the rate of $0.25 per GB per year. The new service leverages Google’s immense cloud storage infrastructure and tempts you to voluntarily upload more of your data onto Google’s servers. It looks like this is as close to a “GDrive” as we’ll get for the time being. In Google We Trust. Right?
