Google Drive is an online storage system which has all kinds of benefits attached to it.
If you've ever used DropBox you'll know how handy it is syncing your information across the cloud. Google Drive is similar in that respect but also integrates with docs, mail, maps and tons of other stuff. It's 5Gb free as standard and has very decent rates if you wish to pay for extra space.
Here's a quick promo video about it:
You can read about this new product at the Google blog or simply sign up to get yours.
If you haven't used Cloud based stuff before (You chances are you will have even if you don't know it) this is definitely worth a bash.
Usual Google owns your soul and sells it to the devil terms and conditions apply!

Not sure if I'll stop using dropbox, I like the name better, don't think the service is any different xD (and I'm never gonna need the 3GB extra)

Yeah, I'm not switching from Dropbox. For one, I don't like the idea of Google have EVEN MORE of my stuff. Secondly, Dropbox has been around a long time and works great. I don't see any reason to jump ship from a company that has treated me very well just because Google is offering a few more GB.

I don't see the point of any of these services.

Ah, this explains why Skydrive gave me a free upgrade from 7GB to 25GB yesterday. Google Drive still says 'not ready' here, but I'll take a look when it's up and running.
I doubt either of these will lure me away from SpiderOak and Wuala, both superior when it comes to security. Let's hope Google and MS will force other file-storing services to increase their free space.

Hm, that's true. I guess I wouldn't have to email myself .apk files all the time so I can install them on my phone.Blinkie Ponie Armie [BPA] :: The Order of Dii [Dii]
