Tech Column: Claim Your 10 GB on Google Drive Today

by Bill Adler

There are lots of cloud storage giveaways. Dropbox, for example, offers a multitude of tasks you can perform to gain extra gigabytes of storage -- everything from referring friends to installing the automatic upload app on your phone.

Until tomorrow, Google is offering 10 gigabytes of storage for two years if you install their Quickoffice --their free Quickoffice-- app on your iPhone or Android phone. QuickOffice lets you create and edit Microsoft Office documents, including Word, Powerpoint and Excel, view PDFs, attach files to email and share files through Google Drive. Quickoffice is tightly integrated with Google Drive.

Even if you don’t work in the cloud, an extra 10 GB of storage can come in handy. Hop over to Google Drive Blog at http://googledrive.blogspot.com/ to read more about this offer, and to find the appropriate link to download Quickoffice for your particular smartphone.
