Google Drive: launching today with up to 100GB storage?

Google Drive: launching today with up to 100GB storage?Cloud storage is all the rage these days, what with Apple’s iCloud, Microsoft’s Skydrive and good old Dropbox to name but a few.

Now Reuters, one of the more reliable sources when it comes to rumour-mongering, reckons Google is about to get in on the action real freakin’ soon, with the announcement of a new service called Google Drive as early as, well, today.

According to a “source familiar with the matter”, Google Drive will offer a modest 5GB for free, with up to 100GB available for some sort of as yet unknown fee.

Cloud storage offers dual-pronged glory, in the sense that files can be accessed anywhere you have an internet connection, and they’re all backed up and stuff - so you needn't worry if your hard drive clicks itself to death. Good times.

Google Drive is also tipped to include “sophisticated image search technology” for sexy sifting action.

A Google spokeswoman explained that the company doesn’t comment on rumours or speculation, but – by the sounds of things – it won’t be too long before Googs spills official juice in our laps. Stay tooned…

Wasn't this around for years under different name? You could buy Google storage after picasa showed up. I used to pay for 50GB - $20 a year, which covered docs, pics and email.
