There have plenty of rumors surrounding the launch of Google’s dropbox service called GDrive. These rumors are growing cold with no new news since the beginning of February.
Why I’m psyched out GDrive:
- Cheaper than iCloud
- Integration with all my Google stuffs: Gmail, Docs, Photos, etc.
- Automatic Sync with my computer (like a Dropbox feature)
- Plenty of storage (unlike iCloud)
- Easy access when I need it (unlike iCloud)
For me, as a Mac and iOS user, this product may actually lead to a giant conundrum: Apple or Google. I’ve been avoiding this fight for as long as I can. Google has made it easy for all my Mac products to work with Google products and services. However, I recently found that my Picasa photo software would no longer import photos from my iOS devices. I am trying iPhoto ’11 and thus far I HATE IT! Like iTunes and Safari, Apple has no clue what a power user wants when it comes to software.
Back on topic: If GDrive doesn’t sync well with all my Mac and iOS devices, I may actually begin to consider making the move to Android and maybe even a Chromebook.
