But, again, it is a pure speculation based on my observation of Google.

    storage, with better security, easier to use,
    cheaper, …

    I’ve been using a service by SMEStorage on my windows PC at work and Mac PC at home for getting access to Google Docs from a Cloud Drive. It’s the closest I’ve got to the fabled “G Drive”. Interestingly it also works with other Cloud Providers, including RackSpace, but I’ve only ever used it on Google so far.
