GDrive

I happened to read a lot on GDrive tonight after the controversy that was created because Google published, then retracted, a massive document containing slides with "speaker's notes" on product plans and financial targets. This was to be presented, without the comments, at its annual "Analyst Day" presentation for Wall Street at its Silicon Valley headquarters last Thursday.

While Google's Analyst Day seemed to go off without a hitch on March 2, 2006, word began leaking out today about some inadvertantly released notes on Google's Analyst Day powerpoint slides, prompting Google to release a Form 8-K to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

The document came to light when blogger Greg Linden of Seattle picked up details from it. According to a number of bloggers who captured the original presentation, it also described an unannounced plan to offer online storage to Web users, creating a mirror image of consumer hard drives. It also mentioned some program called lighthouse.

Haan I liked the GDrive concept.. Pata nahin junta kya privacy-privacy ka halla kar rahi hai :-)
 
Exactly... they don't force you to use it... If one is dumb enough to put his so-called "private" files there, then how is google responsible for that?!
