Google Docs beefs up storage

Google's MS Office-baiting cloud service Google Docs will soon allow the storage of any type of file with sizes up to 250MB, making transferring and storing all of your stuff much simpler.

In a blog post, product manager Vijay Bangaru says: "Over the next few weeks we will be rolling out the ability to upload, store and organise any type of file in Google Docs. With this change, you'll be able to upload and access your files from any computer - all you need is an Internet connection.

"Instead of emailing files to yourself, which is particularly difficult with large files, you can upload to Google Docs any file up to 250MB"

Registered users will get 1GB of free storage for files which no longer need to be converted into one of the Google Docs formats (documents, spreadsheets, and presentations).

Additional storage can be purchased for a very reasonable 25 cents per GB per year.
