Google Drive, Google’s version of Dropbox was announced the other day and there are already geeks grumbling about Google’s privacy policy.  As it’s written, it could be interpreted in a way that would make you think that Google would not only have access to, but also have some ownership of the files you store and share on Google Drive.  As it turns out, that’s not what the privacy policy says at all.  It says that Google needs your permission (which you automatically grant) to take possession of your files to transfer them or help you share them and, of course, index them for your convenience.  Google promises that it will never share your data with anyone or ever own any of your personal information.  If you’re wondering how this is going to play out, you’re not alone.  The idea of storing your personal information and files on someone else’s computer comes with a new set of problems.
