Google Launches Storage Service, "Drive"

Google today launched a long-rumored "Drive” service to allow users store photos, videos, and other digital files in its massive data centers. Available immediately, first five gigabytes of storage per account of Google Drive is free and additional storage will be sold for prices starting at $2.49 per month for 25 gigabytes.

"Drive is also an open platform, so we’re working with many third-party developers so you can do things like send faxes, edit videos and create website mockups directly from Drive," said Google in its announcement today.

Sounds great. Wish I could use it. Rick  –  May 01, 2012 11:30 AM PDT

The Mac version requires Mac OS-X 10.6, which only runs on intel Macs.  None of my PowerPC Macs can use it.
There is no Linux version.  None of my Linux machines can use it.
I haven't tried from Windows, but I'll bet it doesn't work with XP, either.
Sigh!

That was a rash bet The Famous Brett Watson  –  May 01, 2012 5:37 PM PDT

Google drive system requirements and supported browsers (includes Windows XP, Vista, and 7).

What do I win?
