According to those who spotted it, it appeared when they tried to insert files and images into Google Sites and Blogger. A screenshot is now making the rounds, showing that it is tied to Picasa, Maps, Google Docs, and YouTube.
A spokesperson for the company tells, "It looks like someone pushed some code too quickly. It's not quite ready for prime time yet but stay tuned!"
Something like this might come in handy when you want to share things. Incidentally, Google is also working on something else that's not quite ready for prime time and isn't expected to be until the Spring - you know, that "social layer" Google is supposed to be adding to tie its products together. Any suggestion that this is related could only be considered speculation, but it's something to consider. Another thing to consider is that Google is heavily trying to move people to the cloud. Google made an announcement recently that also connects the better part of Google's services together through Google Apps.
Something else that is also apparently not quite ready for prime time? Google's Cloud-based operating system Chrome OS. This very likely has a lot to do with that. In the end all of these things are going to be connected in one way or another, I believe.
