Drive is almost a fad. almost. the capabilities are nice but the real functionality had kinda always been there. Dropbox has been around for years and google docs, msn and any other hotmail carrier will store data. you just have to know what form to put it in.
I agree AKNUDSON, but not everyone out there new Know what form to put it in.
You would think google would make sure its Google Drive came out in the Chrome OS before anything else...
Yeah I applied on day one to be authorized and received it on day two. To tell ya the truth I like Skydrive for a different usage method (Remote support) right now. Not that either one is not useful for what they give you. In combo I think you get 10 GB of cloud space accessible from anywhere.
No matter how great they make this service, they fact they own, can reuse, reproduce and index whatever you put on there is a big turnoff. #FAIL
>> with iOS, Linux and even Google's own Chrome OS still on the waiting list.
ChromeOS *is* Linux. Just not GNU/Linux. Same as with Android.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
>> , can reuse, reproduce and index whatever you put on there is a big turnoff.
If they can't reuse/reproduce something, how do you expect them to download you a copy on your other machine?
If they can't index something, how can they find it for you?
The privacy alerts about google drive are overblown. When you read the fine print, they're equal to if not better than what you get from Dropbox and skydrive See http://www.informationweek.com/news/security/privacy/232901076 for more info.
That said, I don't use Google drive. I haven't filled my dropbox, Ubuntu One, and Minus accounts yet. :p
