Google Drive, the cloud storage service rumored to be in the works by the Mountain View company, looks to have broken cover for at least one person. A GeekWire reader claims that an option to launch Google Drive was found in his account. Being the curious soul that you naturally expect a geek to be, they decided to check it out.

Unfortunately the reader didn’t give many details about the experience but he did say that he saw an option to install Google Drive. It’s not clear what it is you’ll be installing but possibilities include a Google Chrome app or a desktop app which will work sort of like DropBox in that it acts just like a real folder on your computer.

All of that is speculation, of course. We also get confirmation of what Google Drive’s logo will be. It was discovered on Google+ that the logo you see to the left may be the Google Drive logo and that same logo showed up as the user’s favicon when visiting this section of his account.

Google’s clearly working on it but it’s still hard to gauge just how far we are from seeing a release. Early reports pegged a few weeks to two months as its launch window. We can’t say for sure, but it’s possible Google could be saving this announcement for their Google I/O event set to take place this summer. Anyone as excited for this as I am? [GeekWire]
