Mike Ellsworth's insight:
I've used Google Forms before and found them a bit counter-intuitive. This refresh should help.
It's been an interesting few days around the tech world, with the imminent launch of Google Drive looming large.
But now the service is live at http://drive.google.com/start
Drive gives new users 5 GB free for each user account. Upgrades are 25GB for $2.49/month, 100GB for $4.99/month or even 1TB for $49.99/month Docs storage does not count against your Google Drive quota Desktop apps for Windows and OS X are available today. Android is there too but iOS integration is coming in the next few weeks Drive will allow 30+ file types to open natively in the browser, including Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and HD video

This guest post is by Neil Patel of KISSmetrics. Google+ had a hot start, but has since cooled down. For ...
Lots of good suggestions - here's the takeaway:
Whether Google+ takes off or not, you can still use it to accomplish many productive and profitable things for your business. Besides, in the long run I believe that Google+ will play a large part in Google’s search algorithm, and when it does you’ll be ahead of the game!
What productive ways are you using Google+ to promote your business, your blog, and yourself?

A new infographic about Google Search shows the journey of a search on the site, from how it travels at the speed of light to how it ranks its results.
"How would you search a book with a million pages? That is pretty much what Google is doing when you search the web. The amount of information and the number of miles a query may travel is amazing. Check out the infographic for specific information."
More like a trillion pages, but we get it. It's a big, big Web, and Google rules it.

"Sure, Google+ doesn't have anything close to the numbers Facebook boasts. But there's still plenty of value Google can wring from its social network and plenty of places in which it can grow, according to Google VP Vic Gundotra. Google+, he said, is a social layer that goes on top of everything else Google does, rather than an isolated destination."
I agree that Google is playing a deeper, longer-term game with Google+. This report of a chat with the site's chief indicates a bit of the plan, but I expect there's more to it.
Regardless, I don't think Google's intent is to topple Facebook, but rather to counter Facebook's lead in social search.
