Google Docs to Store More Than Docs!

Google Docs to Store More Than Docs!
Topeka

An awesome announcement today from the fellas at Topeka has just broken. You can now store ANYTHING in Google docs!  What does that mean for the layman? Here are some ideas to get your cogs going:

  1. Upload your bike so you never have to walk anywhere
  2. Upload a can of gasoline so you never have to worry about running out of gas
  3. Store your sunglasses so you’ll always have them when you need them

There are hundreds of uses, but you have to ask yourself, “What’s the catch?”

This sort of service doesn’t come cheap. Topeka is committing highway robbery with this service, charging a whopping $.10 per kilogram.

If you uploaded everything in your home, you’d likely end up spending close to $30. Seriously, who has $30 in this economy?

Topekans Topekanites, if you’re reading this, please price your service for the masses! I’m going to go out on a limb and say that the convenience of having everything I own at my fingertips whenever I’m online is not worth a one-time payment of $30.

I guess this is one more technology that will be reserved for the super rich. Topeka – you’ve let me down.

    I am one of the lucky 1000, Topeka hasn’t let me down so far.

    Eric, how dare you come in here touting your wealth! May the poverty-stricken masses toss lettuce heads on your Chrysler!

    Blah blah blah, Topeka. Call me up the day you figure out how I can scan and download my friends into my living room. Or email myself to Playa del Carmen. Now THAT’S technology.

    Ah Shawn, but you’re not thinking! You can store your house in google docs and then go there so all your friends can scan in and come to your house instantly, from anywhere in the world!
