A Look At Google Drive, Google’s Long-Awaited Cloud Storage Service

After more than 6 years of rumors and a long-ago cancellation because “files are so 1990”, Google Drive is finally here. Coming with 5 GB of free storage space, a Dropbox-like desktop sync client, and strong integration with Google’s web apps, Google Drive has a lot to offer. Google Drive is late to the game, but it stands out from the pack with its deep search features and application integration.

6 Cool Interactive Sites To Learn More About American History

I hate to come across as a bit ethnocentric here, but I’ve always loved American history.

America was called the “new world” for a reason. However short it is, it’s history has been both amazing, terrible, exciting and uplifting all at the same time.
