Google's rumored GDrive personal cloud service gets real description
Google's GDrive -- a rumored forthcoming service for storing personal software files on cloud-based Google servers -- looks likely to launch soon, if a reference in a file used by GooglePack is a good indication.
GDrive's "localized product category" is "online file backup and storage," according to the newly discovered description in the file. It also offers a two-line "localized short description" for the long anticipated GGDrive service, which is seen by some as ultimately eliminating the need for storing personal data on PC hard drives.
"GDrive provides reliable storage for all of your files, including photos, music, and documents," the file from Google affirms. "GDrive allows you to access your files from anywhere, anytime, and from any device -- be it from your desktop, web browser, or cellular phone."
The file in GooglePack contains "localized information which is sent to translators."
Critics have cautioned, though, that a cloud-based service such as GDrive could provide Google with vast control over users' personal information.
