This from Eric Auchard at Reuters:

SAN DIEGO (Reuters) – Google Inc. is preparing to offer online storage to Web users, creating a mirror image of data stored on consumer hard drives, according to company documents that were mistakenly released on the Web.

The existence of the previously rumored GDrive online storage service surfaced after a blogger discovered apparent notes in a slide presentation by Google executives published on Google’s site after its analysts presentation day last Thursday.

“With infinite storage, we can house all user files, including emails, web history, pictures, bookmarks, etc and make it accessible from anywhere (any device, any platform, etc),” the notes in the original Google presentation state.

Nothing on pricing in that story. But some good discussion over at the Googling Google blog. There’s some concern, which I share, about 4th Amendment protection of data stored on a remote server.
