Google Drive vs. Dropbox, SkyDrive, SugarSync, and others: a cloud sync storage face-off

Google Drive vs. Dropbox, SkyDrive, SugarSync, and others: a cloud sync storage face-off
Google's very own "Loch Ness monster," also known as Google Drive, has finally launched. It's the new face of Google Documents, and it's also Google's oft-rumored Dropbox-killer. It enters a scene crowded with competitors besides Dropbox that let you sync multiple folders, collaborate with friends, and stream data to your mobile device — so how does Drive fare? We'll take a look at the top apps that let you sync files between all of your devices automatically, share files using password protection, pick which folders you want to sync, and do anything else you might want to do with a syncing app. While our evaluations of each app aren't full-on reviews, they are encapsulations of where each app excels and what makes each unique. Refer to the chart at the bottom of the page for full breakdowns of each application. Sticky TOC engaged!

You can do it with SkyDrive, Google Drive and Dropbox if you’re prepared to do some extra work, but it is more complicated than using libraries and more likely to go wrong (and you won’t get any support from Microsoft, Google or Dropbox if you have problems). Google Drive has the advantage of letting you sync a subset of folders to your PC

The 3D printer market is generally sitting in a quasi-limbo state that’s progressed beyond proving itself on early adopters willing to shell out serious dollar to live the dream, yet still has a very long way to go — and specifically a lot of squeezing of price-tags and smoothing of processes — before it can arrive at the joyous nirvana of mass adoption.
