Others have captured why today’s news that Google’s long-rumored GDrive is finally coming is good for Google, and bad for Microsoft. My interest in the company’s web-based storage service — kind of a giant hard-drive in the sky — is the cusp it represents in how people think about computing, and, therefore, in which vendors dominate going forward.
I know I’m past the point where I generally care where I’ve stored things, and where I over-think security/privacy. And, more importantly, I generally find local storage a pain-in-the-ass. Is everyone else there yet?
