Google Boosts Docs Storage To 5GB; Today Could Be Google Drive Day

Upload something into Google Docs this morning, and you'll notice a 4-gigabyte boost to your storage. A sign that Google Drive is on the horizon?
TechCrunch reported it this morning, and we checked it out. Indeed, our storage went from 1 gigabyte to 5 gigabytes after we uploaded a document.
It has been widely speculated that today is G-Day, the day Google Drive is to be announced. Sites across the Web have posted leaked documents suggesting the cloud-storage service will offer users 5 gigabytes of storage for free, rivaling SugarSync and Box and dwarfing DropBox's free 2 gigabytes.

When you click on the link to add storage within Google Docs, you find this explanation above the pricing structure for more storage: "Google storage is shared between Gmail, Picasa Web Albums, and Google Docs. You get extra space in all these services, in addition to your current free quota."
The pricing structure posted there goes from 20 gigabytes for $5 a year all the way up to 16 terabytes for $4,096.00 a year.
