Google is adding file storage to its Google Docs product that will allow you to store any type of file you want.

According to the Google Docs blog, the new service will be rolled out to all users over the next few weeks and will allow you to upload any type of file you want up to 250 MB in size up to a total of 1 GB of storage.  Additional GBs of storage are available at the rate of $.25 per GB per year.  Storage folders can be shared with users of your choice to make it easy for parties spread out around the country or world who are working on the same project can work together on all of the necessary files.

There is no word yet on a file uploading program, but there almost has to be to make this service truly usable.

There are two worrying aspects to this service:

  1. Do we really want to let Google have an even deeper look into our lives?  There seems to be no end to the amount of information it wants out of us, and having access to our files to boot just seems a little silly of us to give.
  2. With the ability to share files with friends, can anyone say “piracy”?  I knew you could.  Google just made it easy for friends to share as much music with one another as they would like to.

It is amazing how many services Google rolls out, but it doesn’t always mean it’s a great idea for the users.
