gDrive, Where do you want to store it today?

According to WSJ, Google is getting ready with their online storage service. It was dubbed "gDrive" by people who were speculating about it for a while now. It will offer two tired service, free and paid. Size and the price has not been published yet.
Google already effectively offers storage for consumers' files through Web applications such as its Docs word-processing, spreadsheet and presentation applications and its Gmail email. Users can upload photos to its Picasa Web Albums photo-hosting service, which provides one gigabyte of free storage. They can purchase from 10 gigabytes to 400 gigabytes additional storage for $20 to $500 per year. This storage can be shared by users' Gmail and Picasa accounts and soon with files for Docs. Google bring out that web OS.
The GMail drive, a shell extension to windows has been available for a long time now. This allows one to store files on ones assigned Gmail space, which is around 5GB for my account.
