GDrive Still in The Works?

A new interview with a Gmail project manager (Todd Jackson) has given some renewed hope that GDrive may still be in the works. GDrive is the name given to a potential new Google service. GDrive would be a virtual hard drive hosted by Google. While nothing is official, and it may even be a stretch to connect the comments to GDrive, it is the first potental indication in quite some time.


While sitting down with a Gmail project manager, Todd Jackson, cnet’s Josh Lowensohn discussed a couple future features. At the end of his article, he quotes Todd as saying:

“We know people’s file sizes are getting bigger. They want to share their files, keep them in the cloud, and not worry about which computer they’re on. Google wants to be solving these problems,”

If and when it finally launches, GDrive will likely let you store files in the cloud instead of on your local machine. Ideally, interacting with your GDrive would be as simple as using a physical drive on your computer. Josh thinks that when it’s launched, it will also be tightly integrated with Gmail.
