Overheard – Another GDrive sighting

It would appear Google has its own Loch Ness monster, with mysterious sightings suggesting the existence of Google GDrive, Google’s mythical online storage service.

Sylvie Barak, Mythical Gdrive surfaces in Google code

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves when bogger Brian Ussery stumbled across a wee bit of code hidden away in a Google Pack software bundle for Windows users, which appeared to contain GDrive’s product category and description.

Atlanta blogger Brian Ussery spotted a reference to the mythical GDrive last week — and started a blogswarm. The description said:

GoogleGDrive provides reliable storage for all of your files, including photos, music and documents. GDrive allows you to access your files from anywhere, anytime, and from any device – be it from your desktop, web browser or cellular phone.

OMG — what if the rumors in 2009 — as compared to the same rumors in 2006, 2007 and 2008 turned out to be true?

Sigh…

I think the only interesting thing, when we finally get confirmation that indeed — the GDrive is ready and available — will be how much free storage Google grants you. Microsoft started out with five but now gives you 25 GB for free with SkyDrive. If Google tops that, THEN I’ll be impressed.
