John Gruber and Dan Benjamin talk about the possible launch of Google’s new cloud storage service named ‘Drive’. It’s positioned in direct competition with Dropbox. Clearly the ‘me too’ mantra seems to not work in our current climate especially for Google. Google + failing already again and Pinterest, which brings something completely unique to the table running away crazy numbers.
How hard can it be to step away from the computer screen and envision the next thing and not end up with a ‘me too’? In Mountain View it seems impossible.
PS: On a side note, I wonder if Pinterest’s numbers will affect the Facebook IPO in any way.
