The rumors about Google's long-awaited GDrive (or Google Web Drive) has shown up again on news websites as well as other blogs:
- "Throw your hard drive away, Google's Gdrive arriving in 2009" TGDaily, January 19, 2009.
- "Google plans to make PCs history" The Observer, Guardian (UK), January 25, 2009.
- "Google's Rumored GDrive May 'Kill' the PC" Fox News.com, January 25, 2009.
- "Inklings of online storage: Google Web Drive" CNET News, January 21, 2009.
