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 @ 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?

Digital magazines, the iPad and tablet computers… what’s it all about?

by A. Montaqim


Digital magazines and newspapers will be more widely read than print magazines and newspapers within 10 years. That’s my prediction

I first walked into a newspaper office when I was still in my teens, when my friend took me to his house, where his family owned and produced a weekly tabloid newspaper for the community. The newspaper was printed on 55 gsm paper, as far as I remember.
