When you disconnect from the internet you will now, finally, be able to continue to make changes to your files that have synced.

By on

The next big OS is the internet. Here’s what Google’s doing to make sure of it. Google’s always been known for their lack of unity, internally and externally, with their products and teams.

SkyDrive vs Google Drive: the definitive guide to documents and files in the cloud

By on

The cloud is just starting to get big, with Microsoft and Google now offering to keep your data on the web and sync it to every computer you use. But the big decision is which cloud service to go with: Google Drive or SkyDrive. And while Dropbox has an ecosystem, you’d be a bit silly to not move away from that if you want cloud document editing and a web interface that […]

Google Drive has finally officially launched, after years of speculation, and is available now or, for some users, very soon. The service, which has literally been rumoured, and then reportedly killed, over 4 years ago has finally arrived with Google Docs, Google+ and Gmail integration, a better API, 5GB of free storage and native file-syncing, basically like DropBox or SkyDrive offers.

Google Drive Incoming: 5GB appearing in Google Docs accounts, rumoured release today

By on

It’s a big day for the cloud, isn’t it? Microsoft, only this morning, released a preview for their Dropbox-style desktop clients for SkyDrive, while also (disappointingly) cutting out 18GB of data for new users, leaving you with only 7GB of free space. It’s still competitive, but sadly it shows that the 25GB was only for show with the previously web-only interface. Meanwhile, in camp Google, it appears that their big […]

By on

Microsoft has today added a sync client to SkyDrive that works with Mac and Windows. Similar to DropBox, the new SkyDrive apps create a folder, called SkyDrive, which provides a native syncing functionality. But the good news, sadly, comes with bad news.

Skydrive gets more improvements – more (paid) storage, native apps for Windows and Mac

The news of the clients come via the little promo on the leaked images, but Mac users will certainly rejoice. You can now […]

Exclusive: Google Drive gets closer: subdomain becomes active

By on

Rumours are getting very loud that Google Docs will soon be renamed to Google Drive and I think Google, themselves, have just proven the existance of the rebranding and change. Last week when you went to drive.google.com the domain wouldn’t resolve. This week, however, drive.google.com shows a 404 Not Found message. This means that the drive.google.com subdomain has been added by Google, making the rumours much more believeable. The Wall […]
