Google launches Google Drive
Google launched Google Drive, an online service that lets you create, share and store your documents online. You can use the desktop client to upload videos, photographs, Google docs and more to Google's cloud. When you're on the go, you can access these files using a mobile client.
Google Drive includes 5 GB of free storage, and additional space is available at a rate of US$4 per month for 20 GB of storage (up to 16 TB supported). The service will launch with support for Windows and Mac desktops as well as Android devices. An iOS client is in the works.
Google also increased your free amount of Gmail today, now up to 10 GB. Also, if you update to Google Drive, be aware that docs.google.com will redirect to drive.google.com, which (as The Next Web suggests) indicates somewhat of a rebranding of Docs into Drive.
