Google puts Drive, Google +, and Gmail Into One Unit and Ups Storage to 15GB

As Google puts more and more services in The Cloud, keeping everything all together and organized can sometimes prove difficult to accomplish.
The smart people at Google know that and have decided to create a more seamless storage option.  Previously users had 10GB for Gmail, and 5GB for Google Drive and Google + Photo storage.  Now, users get a combined 15GB of "unified storage" for free.  It can be used for any of the 3 mentioned services.
The idea, of course, is that now you can use the storage the way *you* want to.  Previously you were trapped by Google's limitations, but now those are wiped out and you get to use the storage for whatever part of each service you'd prefer.
Of course if you're like me, you can also upgrade the amount of storage available from Google and for a small fee basically have an many GB as you would like.  The limit is 16 terabytes.  Cool huh?
If you'd like to read the blog post from Google announcing the changes, you can find that here.  
Personally, I've become more and more addicted to The Cloud.  With changes like this, I'm pretty confident soon everyone will feel like I do...
