More Gdrive chatter – sounds like wishful thinking…

January 19, 2009 at 11:06 pm Leave a comment

As happens once every few months, the Gdrive rumor mill began to churn again today. This time a blogger at Search Engine Land (SEL) declared “It’s Alive”, based largely on a pretty vague comment made by Gmail Product Manager Todd Jackson in an interview with CNET.

The SEL blog indicated that this might mean trouble for paid subscription sites (they mention Box and ElephantDrive, both of which we’ve included in our directory.

Our take? This is a pretty big leap. The comment Jackson made could simply mean tighter integration with Google Docs and a larger file size limit. Either way, Google is scaling back its new product development so it is unclear how these goals fit into their product road map. Based partly on the research that suggests that users aren’t fully comfortable with the ad-supported services for their personal files, we think this could produce a very interesting delineation.
