Google Drive is up!
Just an FYI (I thought I'd share this since i've been checking since yesterday for it to be released)... 5gigs free is nice, but I had to link this pic through dropbox - i couldn't use the Drive public link the same way as db.. maybe they'll improve on that... for now, I still prefer dropbox..

This post was originally about the Google Drive release (though I do not personally endorse any Google products) - I edited the title to give it a broader topic. So, post your thoughts, preferences, whatever, about online storage and sharing.

Plus, this gives me an excuse to post my latest screenshot... One can only go so far without deodexing - like no reboot option in power menu, dropdown toggles, 1% batt increments, etc... anything smali related.. but I got a plan

Really? Sucks for you - cool for me.
I just went to drive.google.com, and it took me to my Docs page with some new options, but I already had a Google Documents account going on..
..or was it "not ready" at the Play Store for you? Because I first got it going on my computer, and then downloaded the app (or simultaneously, maybe)... don't know if that has anything to do with it. Or, maybe they pulled it right away... who knows..

In my opinion, the lack of "direct link to download" is a big dissapointment :/

nevertheless, the service is very good.

Please Google... add the option to directly download via link!

Why would I need this? Google + is already instantly uploading my photos. Do i really need a second Google product uploading them?

The End.

I agree with both of you. I haven't tried uploading and posting a link to something bigger, like say an update.zip, not sure if you can even - but i know it won't be a direct download link like db gives you... so, far it seems like a glorified goog docs... not impressed...
