A fan of startups, entrepreneurship, getting things done faster, penning the occasional blog post, taking photos, designing, listening to good music and making lurrrve.

2398202898_21eb584198Designer Brian Ussery spotted a reference to the GDrive in a file within Google’s suite of apps, the Google Pack.

The file places the GDrive within an “online file backup and storage” category and describes the application in two separate lines:

1. GDrive provides reliable storage for all of your files, including photos, music and documents

2. GDrive allows you to access your files from anywhere, anytime, and from any device – be it from your desktop, web browser or cellular phone’

This clearly implies a confirmation of plans for the GDrive plus the ability to access your files and information from multiple locations. With inclusion in the “Google Pack”, we can also assume there will be a desktop application as well…online storage startups, be prepared.
