Move over Dropbox, get out of the way Microsoft SkyDrive, there’s a new kid on the block – GoogleDrive is here and, at first glance, it looks like an outstanding service.  GoogleDrive is fully integrated with Google Apps and, with 5GB of free storage, and competitively priced options up to 16TB, yep, you heard me Terebytes of storage, GoogleDrive is serious about business users.  When you open it up, GoogleDrive looks alot like Dropbox. Your files are stored locally on all of your connected devices as well as in the cloud.  But that’s where the similarity ends. GoogleDrive is also the new face of Google Docs and it now serves as the file manager for Google’s suite of cloud-based productivity apps.  So you can mix and match your Google docs and spreadsheets with all of your other files in one simple interface.  GoogleDrive also features text extraction, optical character recognition and a host of other awesome features that truly set it apart.
