Google Drive: Replaces Docs, Doesn't Replace iCloud

After a few months of annoying user speculation, Google has finally revealed what looks like their competitor to Apple's iCloud. They call it Google Drive. It's a full rebranding of Google Docs, now with desktop integration and the ability to store more than just documents. But that's pretty much it. It certainly isn't a replacement for iCloud, and I don't think that's what Google was aiming to do. In reality, it's the new Google Docs, now with desktop support. It's free with the base 5 GB of storage, and Google will be offering up to 25 GB of storage for $2.49 a month, 100 GB for $4.99, and a full terabyte for $49.99 a month. Holy crap. So, if you're looking for a proper, more mainstream solution to storing your eons of files for a good price, look no further than Google Drive.
