Google Drive Now Provides Gmail with 10GB Attachments

We've all had those moments where you try to send a rather large attachment and then you get the dreaded error message that tells you it's just too big to go through?  Usually this shows up after your computer has cranked a while *trying* to send it so you've also got the dreaded downtime that comes with it as well.
 
If you are a Gmail user, those days could be over.  On November 27th, Google announced it is providing integration between Gmail and the Google Drive service.  What that means is that now a Gmail message will be able to send an attachment that is up to 10GB.  That's right, 10GB.  I honestly cannot remember a time that I ever needed to send a file that large… and I've sent some pretty big files in my day.
 
If you are a Gmail user, you should know that the new integration will only with Google's new Compose Format, but that isn't a big deal.
 
I can remember when Gmail was invitation only and I was thrilled to finally get my invite.  I knew, even back then, that there would be some cool things to come along with it.
 
As I've said here before, it's becoming a Cloud based world and tons of our data is going to be there sooner as opposed to later.  Now we've got one more reason to embrace the Cloud for all of this stuff since Google Drive is a Cloud base storage service (which I happen to use and like, but i also use and like Amazon's service as well).
 
So Gmail users, I thought you'd like to know this.  Enjoy!
