Soon after that report, screenshots allegedly showing the interface of the service popped up on the interwebs. Those screenshots showed a service that looked a lot like the current version of Google Docs.

And earlier this week, a new, more specific report emerged that said Google would be unveiling Google Drive in the first week of April.
