But now, Google is having trouble keeping its monster under control as a number of Web users have raised privacy issues with the new product.
Targeting competitors such as the successful Dropbox and Microsoft’s SkyDrive service, Google Drive, which is rolling out for all Google account-holders over the next few weeks, allows users to save files from their computers and Android mobile devices wirelessly onto Google’s servers for access from any other computer or Android device.
Google Drive operates on a “freemium” model, offering users 5 gigabytes of free storage and then charging monthly for any additional space needed on top of that at various tiers up to 1 terabyte for $49.99 a month.
