Google Drive or the Virtual Hard Drive Created by Google

Google Drive or the Virtual Hard Drive Created by Google

By Keith Johnson

The SOP Word of the Day: Drive

The word drive is both a noun and a transitive verb. On the noun side, there are words like Google Drive, where Google is actually the adjective in this case. So, which drive you may ask? Oh, I am talking about the new Google Drive or the Virtual Hard Drive created by Google.

Incidentally, Google Drive is quite popular today and is similar to the iCloud of Apple and you can upload a great, great amound of data and applications to this virtual drive and then access it all via your diverse devices like the mobile phone, tablet computer, desktop computer and laptop computer. On the other side, drive is a transitive verb.

For example, this weekend, my son will drive the car to Orlando to visit Sea World with his friends. So, in this case, drive is the verb and the object of this verb is "car".
