I was reading a post on thenextweb and suddenly became excited with what Google is doing in this space.

Now the concept of Google Drive seems to be pretty much alike Dropbox. You drop your files into Google Drive and you will be able to access it from anywhere or everywhere including Smart Phones, Tablets, Macs and or PCs.

It will come up with 5GB more space.
With dropbox you can get upto 16 GB free space depending on number of referrals you generate but to start with they offer 2 GB of FREE space.
