GMail to Kick Up Free Storage – Where’s My GDrive Already?

I’m regularly outspoken about my concerns that Google is going to take over the world and start passing out brain implants – but the fact of the matter is that I love Google services. Today’s announcement that more GMail storage is on the way is heartening, but you’ve got to wonder: why is this mighty giant messing around with anything other than a total storage solution for all my data across all their apps? Where is the GDrive already?

Google told analysts more than a year ago that it wanted to store 100% of our data, a “golden copy.” Perhaps its failure to do so yet is a sign of the finite power it truly holds. Or perhaps its just a ruse to lull cynics like me into a false sense of security. That’s probably not what’s happening.

I should probably pay $50 for super Google, as advocated this morning by Amit Agarwal in reference to the news. See also one estimate of forthcoming free storage capacity over at the blog Googlified.

Finally, I’m sure there are some of you out there that still haven’t seen the following video about the future of Google and the web in general. It’s not to be missed, it’s thought provoking and funny. See you in the “hive mind” if it ever arrives!
