Google Drive and its logo spotted in the wild

first_imgWell, what do we have here? Why, it’s another leaked image that appears to show the most elusive Google product of all time: Google Drive, or the app formerly known as GDrive.It bears a striking resemblance to the current Google Docs interface, and it’s entirely possible that this is the work of a prankster who threw together a userscript, userstyle, or extension that simply modifies the Docs dashboard. It’s also possible this is the real deal, since Google Docs has been steadily evolving into a Google Drive-like app over the years.Early in 2010, Google allowed us to begin uploading (and sharing) files of any type to our Docs storage. They’ve added an integrated music player like the one available in Gmail and Google Reader, which is the kind of feature that you’d much sooner expect from a cloud Drive than a web-based productivity suite.They’ve also let us flip the automatic upload switch on our Android devices to wirelessly push photos and videos to Picasa Web and opened the doors for our tunes over at Google Music. Now, more than ever, it’s time for Google to give us a central location where we can manage all these files…And where better to do it than what is now the Google Docs start page?Tech blog Geekwire also claims to have spotted the Google Drive logo — which they’ve blown up from its nearly-favicon size into a larger, pixelated version:You may have also noticed the “install Google Drive” text in the leaked image, and it’s easy enough to imagine what the app would do. It’s safe to say that it would work how Google Music and Picasa currently do on our desktops.Google’s remaining tight lipped as always, but I/O 2012 is just four months away. If they’re planning on making a splash, that weekend in June seems like a good time to do it as all eyes will be on Mountain View.More at Geekwirelast_img read more
