Newsmaker: Elias Makos on Google Drive, Nintendo
Google Drive, which launched this week, is the massive internet company's newest foray into cloud computing.
Many people already rely on Google Docs and Gmail, but now Google is offering a one-stop solution for keeping data files online.
Technology consultant Elias Makos said there is a lot of competition already in this field.
"Companies like Dropbox. Microsoft with their Sky drive. Apple has iCloud. Sugar sync. There are tons of companies doing this, but Google is a big name, that is why there is so much commotion about this," said Makos.
Many people are concerned that Google's privacy regulations mean any document that is uploaded suddenly belongs to Google.
"This couldn't be farther from the truth," said Makos.
"Yes, when you upload a file to Google drive, you are Google the right to do certain things with this, like translate it, share it to other people when you allow them to share it.
There are a lot of products that that will they need permission to do that, but they've made it very clear."
