Google Drive

Last year amid a wave of fanfare Apple introduced iCloud to the world. iCloud is a common sharing/storage area for photos, document etc. Truthfully, when Steve Jobs introduced iCloud's the only thing special about it was an Apple product. Cloud networking had been around for a while before iCloud...and I guess the same can be said for Google's newest release, "Google Drive".

Google Drive is, well...why don't I let google explain...
Store everything safely and access it anywhere (especially while on the go). All your stuff is just... there. You can access your stuff from anywhere—on the web, in your home, at the office, while running errands and from all of your devices. 

Hey, that sounds like cloud networking to me. Google is boosting that Google Drive is even equipped with OCR (optical character recognition), so you can scan a newspaper article and then later search it using a keyword.

Right now, google is giving away 5GB of free storage, which is plenty for someone like me...but if someone needs more, for a small fee he/she can increase the storage capacity.
