Google has quickly become an online hub with their cloud offerings, as many people use Gmail, GDocs, and Google Contacts in their daily lives. The only problem with these services is that they are connected, but not to the degree that they could be. For example, say you’re writing an email to a co-worker and you want to find a document to send them. Normally you would have to open another tab, search for that document in Google Documents, and then share the document that way. With CloudMagic, you can search all of Google’s services in one place.

When the iPhone launched on AT&T’s network in 2007, the strain of accommodating the heavy data usage of smartphone users took a toll on the network’s infrastructure. It wasn’t too long before AT&T did away with unlimited data plans in an effort to get control of the amount of data served up by their networks.

Verizon featured unlimited data plans, but quickly followed in AT&Ts footsteps this year as they did away with unlimited plans and moved to the same tiered plans offered by AT&T. Obviously Verizon wasn’t comfortable serving up massive amounts of data on 3G/4G to its users and as it’s currently ranked as the No. 1 carrier in the United States, it’s hard to believe that a little guy like Sprint will stand much of a chance.
