Google's Mystical GDrive Might Soon Be a Reality
And speaking of Google, according to Om Malik of GigaOm, Google's answer to the mighty Dropbox could possibly be announced this April 2012:
According to the details from my sources, Google is going to offer 1 Gb of storage space for free, but will charge for more storage. The market leader Dropbox currently offers 2 Gb for free. Google?s product will come with a local client and the web interface will look much like the Google Docs interface. Interestingly, it will launch for Google Apps customers and will be domain specific as well. Google has also built an API for third party apps with this service so folks can store content from other apps in the Google drive. My sources are impressed, so far with what they have seen.
Foamicate: Authentication Without Passwords
The Foamicate site is intriguing: it promises a system for authenticating users without the need for passwords:

The server authenticates the client and uses the public key to associate the client with an account. The addon then takes the user to a url based on success or failure.
