Earlier this week, Google introduced Google Drive, a free cloud-storage system for Google users. Users get 5GB storage for free and can buy up to 1TB through monthly subscriptions.
Many years ago, when Gmail started, a Gdrive always seemed imminent. There was even a “g-drive” extension for Firefox, which turned a Gmail account into an online hard drive--except all the files were split into 25MB parts, limiting its usefulness. It also was an independent geek creation, not an official Google product.
