"As you can see in Wigand's picture (above, with important
elements circled by me), Google Drive on the web will essentially
be Google Docs rebranded. This shouldn't be a big surprise since
Google has been positioning Docs as a sort of Google Drive since
early 2010. The difference is that Google specifically didn't want
to call it that at the time. Now they do.
"And it makes a lot more sense. Few people are using Google Docs
for online storage beyond the files they use in Docs. Most still
probably don't even realize they can. Something as simple as
changing the name to Google Drive should help with that. There will
also be a new "My Google Drive" area for various folders in Google
Drive. There will be other Drive-specific tools as well.
"But here's the real key: there will also be native syncing
software that you install on your various computers and mobile
devices. Yes, like Dropbox."
