The new Google Docs interface is reportedly featuring a new file type (“Files”) that seems to be a generic file format. Of course, that gets people thinking about “online storage” and GDrive, Google’s upcoming online storage solution. So, is Google Docs morphing into GDrive or is Google Docs’ storage simply moving to GDrige? We think that the latter is more logical.
Right now, user storage is fragmented across multiple services like Picassa, Google Doc or even YouTube. But if Google is really serious about its Chrome OS, it will need some kind of centralized storage system from which applications can read and write data. Users might also demand the option of copying all their content to a local drive (I would). This is not something that one can do easily today…
