Let’s just say that I jumped the gun with the leaked Google Drive info article that I’d written, with drive.google.com going live about 20 minutes later. But if you thought the leaked information was impressive, the official announcement and features will blow your mind! As the Senior VP of Chrome and Apps at Google, Sundar Pichai, puts it, Google Drive is less about storage and more about creating and collaborating with storage just happening along the way.
Here’s a quick run-down of the next-big-thing in cloud storage, Google Drive:
Google’s cloud storage service comes with 5GB of free storage space, with an additional 25GB available for just $2.49 per month. You can further expand your storage space to 100GB for $4.99/month and 200GB for $9.99/month. Corporate accounts go up to an incredible 16TB, which costs $799/month.
The Google Drive application is available for Windows, OS X, and Android, with iOS support coming soon. You can download the Android version of the app available on the Google Play Store, here.

What are your thoughts? Is Google Drive all you hoped for? Is 5GB free storage too little? If you’ve tried Google Drive already, let us know your experience in the comments section below.

Google claims the right, in the user’s agreement, to share everything with anyone, at any time and in any way that you share with Google. Why would anyone in their right mind want to give away all of their privacy to Google? Why would any business trust Google with any of their information that they would not want to see on the home page of a web site?
