These days, everyone and their uncle offer online cloud data storage plans. Dropbox is the name everyone knows, but big name Internet companies like Amazon, with its Cloud Drive; Apple with iCloud; and Microsoft with SkyDrive all have their personal cloud storage options to tempt you with as well. But, the one big company that everyone’s been waiting on for a cloud storage option, Google, has never shown their personal cloud drive cards. That may be changing.
According to a Wall Street Journal report, Google is getting ready to launch a personal cloud-storage service called Drive . Sources are reported to have said that, like most Google services, it will be free for free for most of its consumers… unless they require a lot of storage. How much is a lot? Good question. We don’t have any answers. Dropbox prices, which are typical for personal cloud storage, currently give users 2GB for free, then charges them $9.99 for 50 GB and $19.99 for 100 GB.
Google’s response to this story is that “We do not comment on rumor or speculation.” OK. Fair enough.
