Scott Johnston, Product Manager at Google, announced on is Google+ page that Google Docs has increased the maximum upload file size from 1GB to 10GB.

"Psssst...we just raised the max file size from 1GB to 10GB in Google Docs. Don't tell +Katherine Eller I told you or I'll be in big trouble," said Johnston.

That's a good news, but at the same it is also surprising that Docs only offers 1GB of free storage. Where as, Chromebook users are supposed to store their files online and there are many services that offer more free storage than Docs: from Dropbox (2GB) and Box.net (5GB) to Amazon Cloud Drive (5GB) and Windows Live SkyDrive (25GB). While you can buy 20GB of storage for $5/year, it's obvious that more people would upload their files to Google Docs if the service offered at least 20GB of storage for free. Releasing a sync software like Music Manager would make it easier to upload files and to access them from any computer.
