Google Drive, Coming Soon!

I really can’t wait to get on with Google Drive, Google’s own Cloud Storage service – it’s supposed to be launching in the next few days / weeks!

I feel really sorry for the likes of DropBox though, their service and app is excellent on Android phones, but will people just simply stop using it since Google Drive will work seemlessly on Android Phones?

Space is more too with a hinted 5GB Free to start Drive, compared to the 2GB from DropBox it’s going to get more people moving.

Let’s hope the app auto uploads Photo’s you’ve taken off your Droid Phone to cloud storage!

But, with all these new Google Ventures, I wonder how long until Google becomes Aware!  #judgementday



Google Hosted jQuery or Other Scripts not working – Google CDN Down

On most PC’s trying to access the Google Content Delivery Network (CDN) will give you a 404 error of the file not found!

Seems like I would suggest using a fallback script to local, this will then be bulletproof!

This sort of thing would work:

Or if you're using MooTools using Google Hoosted / CDN Try this:
