Google Drive Review
Google Drive is Google’s cloud storage solution. They have made a name for themselves being the first online word processing suite. Now they have expanded their reach to include cloud storage.
Drive takes Google Docs and adds 5 free GB’s of extra space and allows you to upload any type of files you want. It is a very easy to use system, and with Google constantly making upgrades to it, it will likely be a household name in no time.

Google was founded in 1998 by Sergey Brin and Larry Page. These college kids started the company in their Stanford dorm room and it grew very fast. Sun Microsystem’s founder Bechtolsheim was one of the first investors.
Their total acquisitions is $21.3 Billion, they have tons of products including Google Plus and Gmail. Google has started many products like Google Wave that do not last. However, Google Drive is seen as a major player and will not likely disappear anytime soon.
I think sharing could be a little easier and I wish they had an iOS app for my iphone and ipad.
I do like that Google Drive works great with my google docs and my google account. I use gmail so it is nice to have most things in one place.
I just hope that Google does not start sharing my files. I don't expect them do but I wish the end user agreement was more assuring.
I am glad that I tried them out and I hope they improve the sharing and release their iOS app.
