Maybe it's just 'cause you're :old:

Maybe that's why I disliked it before?  Or why I like it now?

 Both.  You didn't like it before because "damn kids changing my google, get off my lawn :old: " and you like it now because "oh nice big buttons are easy to see and click and don't strain my eyes :old: "

:mg:

I've had it on for a long time so I'm used to it now.

To be fair, the screens I use at work are 21.5" 1080p, so the dot pitch is a bit higher than is ideal (~100 dpi vs ~90)

Does the Chrome yellow auto-fill boxes work for you here?  They don't for me (and they never have).  My user name is correct but my password is hidden, obviously.  And when I click login I get an error message,  "Password incorrect".  What appears to be being sent is the black dots rather than the actual password.

I posted this in the now locked Software and Web thread last year and just discovered that it's been fixed as I don't often save my passwords in Chrome very often.

Google Drive details leak: 5GB for free
By Rachel King | April 16, 2012, 1:04pm PDT

Summary: Google Drive will reportedly be unveiled next week with 5GB of free cloud space for each user.

Google Drive could be available to Internet users as soon as next week, based on details that have leaked on Monday.

Although rumors have been circling for awhile, it was widely reported in March that Google would launch its own online storage and collaboration service, dubbed Google Drive, at some point in April.

That appears to be very true now, along with some additional details to sweeten the deal. For example, instead of the earlier expected 1GB of free cloud space, each user will be getting up to 5GB of free space on Google Drive.

That actually makes much more sense overall. Not only does Google undoubtedly have the resources to be able to cover that for its customers, it puts it on par and even ahead of the competition.


Dropbox only offers 2GB of free storage space, while iCloud and Box each offer 5GB of free space. (Box even offers up to 50GB of free cloud space if you managed to qualify for one of their promo deals tied to tablets such as the iPad and HP TouchPad.)

Predictably, Google users will be able to buy more space if 5GB doesn’t suffice.

But what’s really going to be key for Google Drive is that it will potentially offer users more flexibility and access options than any other cloud provider — at least on the consumer level. Aside from all of the Gmail and Google Apps integration possibilities, Google is covering all of the bases with support for the G-Drive on Mac, Windows, iOS and Android devices.

An exact launch (or announcement) date hasn’t been revealed yet, but expect it to happen by the middle of next week.

Thinking about using Google Drive? You might want to compare terms of service agreements first. Dropbox: You own the content you upload. Microsoft SkyDrive: Ditto. Google Drive:

When you upload or otherwise submit content to our Services, you give Google (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content.

Google music is pretty damn awesome. They just need to get all the licenses.

we reviewed the TOS for Google Docs a while ago and found that Google is pretty clear about saying that they have no access to the data stored within it.

Hmm, I'm getting 'operation timed out' any time I try to log in to any Google site.

EDIT: Got in. Which is good, because I had the new GDT's initial post saved as a Gmail draft.
