Google: Drive (cloud storage and productivity suite)

Google Docs is becoming Google Drive on regular Gmail accounts.  Our Skipjack mail is a Gmail product via Google Apps for Education.  Our students, faculty, and staff can login to their Skipjack accounts and access these features.  Google Drive will be released for Education apps soon, but a date has not been provided.  When you login to your Skipjack account  you will see a notice that it will be upgrading to Google Drive.

Here is a helpful review of the new Google Drive. 

What do you think about it?  How have you been using it for education?
