Google Drive Now Live

Google launched the long rumored Google Drive today and it turned out to be both more and less than expected.

Google is not new to cloud storage; they’ve offered vast amounts of space in Gmail as well as storage in Google Docs for quite some time now. So it should probably come as no surprise that Google Drive is pretty much an expansion of Google Docs. It build on the editing and sharing abilities of Google Docs and offers 5GB of storage for any files you care to upload. You can also get more storage; upgrades cost 25GB for $2.49/month, 100GB for $4.99/month or even 1TB for $49.99/month. In addition, when you sign up for a paid plan you Gmail account will also be bumped to 25GB (from 7.9GB).

There are Google Drive apps for Windows, OSX, and Android, and you can find them via the Google Drive website.
