This is pretty cool, Google Docs is increasing storage limits. While they're quick to point out that this is not GDrive, because GDrive does not exist, Google has increased the filze sizes that can be uploaded and the file types, including .zip, video files, etc. The only restriction is that files must be under 250MB each.
The new features are expected to roll out over the next few weeks. Users get 1GB of storage free, additional storage is .25/month/GB.
