|The desktop is dead. Welcome to the Internet cloud, where massive facilities across the globe will store all the data you’ll ever use.
George Gilder, The Information Factories
According to the Wall Street Journal:
Google is preparing a service that would let users store on its computers essentially all of the files they might keep on their personal-computer hard drives — such as word-processing documents, digital music, video clips and images, say people familiar with the matter. The service could let users access their files via the Internet from different computers and mobile devices when they sign on with a password, and share them online with friends. It could be released as early as a few months from now.
Now you can forget to back up stuff on your gDrive too.
