Google products are never out of Beta.

Beta is the term Google use to annonce that they have created something, do not have a clear idea of exactly what is should do, get some feedback, publically annonce the iminent release, re-invent the wheel for re-inventions sake , and "then" ShitCan the whole thing.

It will be interesting to see how long Google Drive lasts before they change its name.

Google are still in the Beta stage of Fanboi frenzy, wheras Apple have passed that stage long ago..
