Cloud Save for Google Chrome sends files from the Web to your online storage

We've shared a handful of Google Chrome context menu extensions before, and this weekend we discovered a new one which is oozing potential: Cloud Save. Install Cloud Save, and you'll add the ability to right-click files on Web pages you visit and zap (or sideload) them to various online services like Google Docs, Dropbox, Picasa, Flickr, Posterous, CloudApp, and Box.Net. The extension...

Google Apps customers can now purchase additional storage on the cheap

A while back, Google started offering inexpensive storage upgrades for Google Docs storage. Now, users with a domain set up on Google Apps can purchase additional storage, too. The change means you can boost your disk space to 20GB for a paltry $5 per year, or a whopping 1TB for $256 per year (which works out to about $22 per month). That's a very reasonable price for additional cloud storage,...

Picasa Web Albums now store unlimited small images and videos

Recently, some users of Google's Picasa Web service noticed something odd. Like Gmail, Picasa Web tells you how much of your total available storage you're using. Something appeared to be wrong, however -- users were reporting having more free space than they previously had. It's common for Google to silently bump our upper storage limits, but how were these users showing the same number of photos...

Picasa Web gets secure with HTTPS support

Most of Google's Web apps already supported SSL-encrypted connections. One which didn't was Picasa Web, though that has now changed -- you can now connect to Google's photo sharing site via https://www.picasaweb.com.

Picasa Web Albums, the online half of Google's Picasa software/service duo, has received a new zoom viewer that is powered by Adobe's Flash. Clicking on the familiar magnifying glass that sits next to a photo lets you zoom in or out on a rectangular selection. This feature is apparently being called 'microscope zoom', and you absolutely have to have the Flash plug-in installed for it to work,...

Google announces big price cuts on paid extra storage for GMail, Picasa Web

You may not have heard about it before, but Google has been offering additional storage for GMail and Picasa Web users for quite some time. Today, the folks in Mountain View announced big time price breaks. If you want a little extra elbow room for your email, attachments, and shared photos plans now start at a whopping 20 gigabytes for only $5 per year. Not enough, you say? You'll be happy to...

Google adds web albums to Picasa

Google is currently testing a new version of its photo-management app Picasa in private beta that will let users post photo albums on the web via an integrated, Google-hosted service. You can learn some more about the service or put yourself on the beta waiting list at the Picasa Web site. Rafe Needleman at CNet's Web 2.0 Blog has posted a quick review of the functionality. He says at first blush...
