    Tech Discussion: Google Drive to offer free storage in the cloud
    #1
    Quote:Google has launched a new consumer service offering up to 16TB (terabytes) of storage for photos and other online content.

    Dubbed Google Drive, the service goes head to head with rival cloud services such as Dropbox and Microsoft's SkyDrive.

    It offers 5GB (gigabytes) of storage for free. People pay on a rising scale for more space.

    Experts say that Google is "late" to the market.

    16TB of space could hold more than 4,000 two-hour movies coded in 720p high-definition resolution.
