Methinks: The line “Pinterest just adds a visual dimension” is quite the understatement. Many don’t understand the shared bookmark metaphor because it isn’t visual. Pinning an image on a board make sense. Certainly for b2b purchasers of physical objects, this makes a lot of sense. Think Office Depot and wholesale club products, are you listening guys?

In fact, due to the deep integration with Google Docs, Drive appears to be more like a Docs upgrade than a stand-alone service.” Methinks: This is a brilliant move and pushes the price for online storage to...
