Google Drive -- Cloud Competition Heats Up

Competition for the ever widening field of Cloud storage just ratcheted up a notch with the introduction of Google Drive. From the video, you can see that it is likely to be direct competition for services like Evernote and Dropbox. There is no doubt that the service will be used, especially starting out with 5 GB of free storage. At the top end, you can also buy up to a Terabyte of storage for about $600 a year. This seems a little steep given the $150 price tag on a 3 TB hard disk drive, but it does have the convenience of being available to all your devices where ever you have Internet access. I tried to sign up but was given a message that I would be notified when the online storage was available.
