After years of speculation and rumor, today Google announced Google Drive, a new service that allows users to store data on the cloud. In English, that means a service that allows users to keep documents, photos, videos and other files on Google’s servers and access them from many different devices.
The essentials are that the company is offering 5 gigabytes of free storage and offers plans that go up to 1 terabyte of storage for $50 a month.
My worry is that Google will close it down (like it has other things it has come up with). I’m going to give it a spin though, just because.
