Google Inc. (GOOG: Quote) said it has introduced Google Drive, a place where you can create, share, collaborate, and keep all of your stuff.

Google said, whether you're working with a friend on a joint research project, planning a wedding with your fiancé or tracking a budget with roommates, you can do it in Drive and also upload and access all of your files, including videos, photos, Google Docs, PDFs and beyond.

The company said as Google Docs is built right into Google Drive, you can work with others in real time on documents, spreadsheets and presentations. Once you choose to share content with others, you can add and reply to comments on anything and receive notifications when other people comment on shared items.

Also, with Google Drive, one can store everything safely and access it anywhere, especially while on the go. You can access your stuff from anywhere, on the web, in your home, at the office, while running errands and from all of your devices. You can install Drive on your Mac or PC and can download the Drive app to your Android phone or tablet.

The company added that it is also working hard on a Drive app for iOS devices. And regardless of platform, blind users can access Drive with a screen reader.

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand on Thursday raised its Official Cash Rate by 25 basis points, to 3.00 percent from 2.75 percent. The decision was in line with expectations, and it marks the second straight month with a rate hike following 24 straight meetings in which the rate was not changed. New Zealand's economic expansion has considerable momentum, with GDP estimated to have grown by 3.5 percent in the year to March. Apple Inc. said Wednesday after the markets closed that its second quarter profit rose 7% from last year, as sales surged and margins improved amid strong sales of its iPhones. The company's quarterly earnings per share also came in above analysts' expectations as did its quarterly revenue. At the same time, the company gave a slightly downbeat revenue forecast for the current quarter. Stocks moved mostly lower during trading on Wednesday, giving back some ground after trending higher over the past several sessions. Selling pressure was relatively subdued, however, limiting the downside for the markets. The major averages all closed in the red, although the tech-heavy Nasdaq underperformed its counterparts by a wide margin.
