If you have a Google account, you can now get 5gb of storage in the cloud. I signed up three days ago and just got a notice that I could try Google Drive out. Following the link to their download site, I signed in with my gmail account.
I immediately found policies we had read with Google documents over six months ago. I did find this odd.
After signing in you can download the synchronization program in order to create a folder that will sync with your Google Drive. If you look, you will also see Drive added to your menu in your Google account.

Why? The Golden Question
All over the internet you will find information on ‘How to Subnet’. Suddenly you are thrown into a world of bits and binary and given charts of ‘How to Subnet’. But why do you subnet?

Need a browser that doesn’t hang or is faster on a MIPS powered Android? Use Opera. Where do you get the official apk? Here. From Opera, this release can be download to your Android and installed. If you have MagicCode installed, turn it off during the installation. This browser is smooth and fast.
Be careful downloading apks. Google Market is safe to use. However some developers have listed and uploaded apks for installations and modifications of apps that your device may not be compatible with.
