It goes without saying that Google offers up a lot of “cool tools” so it should not be surprising that any number of Google products qualify to be featured here. Some tools are better than others but Google as a company encourages its developers and engineers to experiment… and we “early adopters” benefit as informal beta testers. This has been a trend for many years. Innovate first, profit later, because you may not know just what you have until the crowdsource shows you the way.

This month’s Cool Tool is Google Drive. With Google Drive you get up to 5 GB of disk space on Google’s cloud that can store any type of file. For $2.50 a month you can upgrade to 25 GB.

Google Docs is now part of Google Drive so you can access your files anywhere, anytime, and share them and edit them with others in real time. That seems pretty cool.
