Yesterday, Cocaman posted a screen capture of what was named Platypus or GDrive. From the looks of the screen capture it seems like an internal tool used at Google is getting ready for prime time. The page is now offline, of course, but the screen capture read;
+ Backup. If you lose your computer, grab a new one and reinstall Platypus. Your files will be on your new machine in minutes.
+ Sync. Keep all your machines synchronized, even if they run different operating systems.
+ VPN-less acecss. Not at a Google computer? View your files on the web at http://troutboard.com/p
+ Collaborate. Create shared spaces to which multiple Googlers can write
+ Disconnected access. On the plane? VPN broken? All your files are still accessible.
