Google Drive, Great start but room for improvement!

by George Heymann | @techeadlines

It’s been nearly a week since Google released Google Drive, and it’s off to a great start. Drive is available for Android, Mac and PC with an iOS and Linux client promised soon. The cloud storage drive comes with 5 GB of free storage which is upgradeable to 25GB for $2.49/month, 100GB for $4.99/month or even 1TB for $49.99/month. When you upgrade to a paid account, your Gmail account storage will also expand to 25GB.

I’ve been using Drive to replace Dropbox for many functions and have been satisfied with its initial implementation. I share my gDoc files as well as an assortment of other files between several of my devices.

Google Docs is integrated with Drive and I would like to see a shared Synced Google Music Folder that would replace the Google Music Manager for Up/Downloading music files. A shared Photo folder would also be a welcomed addition.

Google Drive launching next week for Mac, Windows, Android and iOS will include 5GB free storage

by George Heymann | @techeadlines

According to a recent The Next Web (TNW) report, Google’s rumored “Google Drive” service will launch next week @ http://drive.google.com for Mac, Windows, Android and iOS and will include 5 GB of free storage.

I can’t wait to see how the service will integrate with “Google Docs” and how we will interact with Google Drive. TNW is reporting that  Google Drive will work “in desktop folders” on both Mac and Windows machines.

I’ve been a long time Dropbox user, but may replace it with Google Drive as my virtual storage of choice depending on its implementation.

Do you intend to use Google Drive when its released next week?

GrowlVoice – A Google Voice Client for Mac

by George Heymann

Technology-Headlines

I don’t usually start a product review with a recommendation, but in the case of GrowlVoice for Mac, I’m going to make an exception. If you have a Google Voice account and a Mac do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of GrowlVoice.

The $4.99 application developed by Eric Horacek, is one of my favorite and most used Mac utilities. The excellent Google voice client lets you send and receive texts right from the Mac menu bar quickly and easily.

The threaded text replies makes it extremely easy to view and respond to recent messages in your Google Voice inbox again from the convenience of your Mac menu bar.
