Mythical Gdrive surfaces in Google code

It would appear Google has its own Loch Ness monster, with mysterious sightings suggesting the existence of Google GDrive, Google's mythical online storage service.

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves when bogger Brian Ussery stumbled across a wee bit of code hidden away in a Google Pack software bundle for Windows users, which appeared to contain GDrive's product category and description.

"Online file backup and storage[...]GDrive provides reliable storage for all of your files, including photos, music and document," read the curious description, which continued, "GDrive allows you to access your files from anywhere, anytime, and from any device - be it from your desktop, web browser or cellular phone." Sounds to us like a USB drive with an RS232 socket.

These fresh rumours come hot on the heels of whisperings Google would also be releasing a "Web Drive". The legend of "Google Web Drive" was born when a "Move to Collection" command for handling folders was found in the new Picasa for Mac beta version. It was hastily removed the following day and all evidence of its existence covered up.

But if the truth about GDrive and "Google Web Drive" really is out there, then we expect we'll be hearing about it officially very soon indeed.
