    Weird – I commented on this article and so did a few people, no they’re gone? Is that a trick to avoid any bad press?

    My comment was and still is, there is no option to select Google Drive despite what the article says.

    In the changelog it only mentions ‘Google Docs’ – nothing on ‘Google Drive’. I’ll try Sandisk instead.
