Yes, Google Drive Is Coming. For Real This Time. | TechCrunch

Big challenges ahead for Dropbox, Box.net, and other players, as Google Drive, iCloud, and Windows 8 (with Windows Live sync services) flood the cloud storage/sync market; since Facebook is already handling a lot of big image files, it probably wouldn’t be a big stretch for Facebook to also start syncing other types of personal files

And it makes a lot more sense. Few people are using Google Docs for online storage beyond the files they use in Docs. Most still probably don’t even realize they can. Something as simple as changing the name to Google Drive should help with that. There will also be a new “My Google Drive” area for various folders in Google Drive. There will be other Drive-specific tools as well.

But here’s the real key: there will also be native syncing software that you install on your various computers and mobile devices. Yes, like Dropbox.
