- Google Drive is here! Free online file storage and syncing.

Google Docs is integrated with Google Drive so you can work on all your documents, presentations and spreadsheets, as well as share content and then add and reply to comments on any file (PDF, image, video, and so on) and receive notifications when some one else comments on a shared item. One other nice feature is that you can open all these types of files (over 30 different ones) right in your browser, even if you don't have the original program the file was created in on your computer. You can access your files on the web and install the Drive on your Mac or PC and your Android phone (iOS app coming soon). You can also search your files easily by keyword, file type, owner and more. The free account is 5GB. This is another great option for backing up and having cloud access to all of your files.

Google Apps for Education and the New Google Drive

The new product, launching today and available at, offers users 5 GB of file storage and syncing and effectively replaces Google Docs (which has offered file storage for a couple of years.) Google Drive also replaces the editing, file-creation and file-sharing features of Google Docs. There’s been plenty of ink spilled already on the news, and lots of coverage about how Google Docs stacks up against some of the other cloud storage options available. (See: Engadget for a feature and price comparison among Google Drive, Dropbox, Skydrive and iCloud). At the end of the day, which one you choose is probably dependent on how you work and who you’re sharing with. But for schools that are Google Apps for Education (and Chromebooks) customers, it’s likely they’ll take advantage of this tool as opposed to one of the alternatives. EducationOnAir.

I have listed the tips in a random manner which means you can add each one independently of the others.

Google 2Q results show company thriving under Page

CEO Larry Page's traditionally frosty relationship with Wall Street turned into a warm embrace Thursday after the Internet search leader released strong financial results for its latest quarter. The results represented Page's first report card since he became CEO at the start of the second quarter in April, ending the decade-long reign of his mentor, Eric Schmidt.

Although he established himself as engineering and entrepreneurial genius as Google's co-founder, Page has made it clear since the company went public in 2004 that he is more interested in innovation than focusing on the short-term earnings targets set by stock market analysts. Page's standoffish attitude had raised concerns that Google might not exceed expectations as consistently as it did under Schmidt. The concern had been weighing on Google's stock, causing it to lag well behind the technology-driven Nasdaq composite index. Google Docs Templates.
