Unlimited storage, ultra fast bandwidth, Microsoft goes after GoogleMicrosoft Aims to Compete with Google's GDrive - Saturday, April 22, 2006 -
Several weeks ago, we reported that details were leaked about an upcoming technology that Google is working on. According to presentations that Google gave to some press members, a technology which it calls GDrive aims to offer users an unlimited amount of storage.
Now, Microsoft has announced its intention to compete directly with Google. Called Live Drive, Microsoft aims not only to offer users an obscene amount of storage space, but also offer ultra fast bandwidth. According to a report by Fortune magazine, Microsoft is hoping that users will use Live Drive for all types of purposes: saving photos, documents, tax returns and whatever users need to have on access from any computer in the world.
However, just like Google, Microsoft is facing consumer criticism for privacy and information security. Despite these concerns, hundreds of people are fooled into clicking on phishing scams sent into their inboxes on a daily basis. Neither Microsoft or Google have given details about how it plans to secure and ensure privacy to user data with regard to online storage.
