    So today I checked out the new Google Drive. It's similar to dropbox but offers much more storage space and the premium plans are a lot cheaper than dropbox. Since it's Google I am not afraid to say that Google Drive is more reliable too.

    Google Drive is great but sometimes I imagine it gets annoying when you try to download a file. As far as I know unlike dropbox Google Drive doesn't seem to support hotlinks to files. After doing a bit Google I found out that someone managed to "hack" hotlinks for Microsoft's Skydrive, a similar service, but his "hack" doesn't work anymore due to changes made by Microsoft. I dunno if the download links of Google Drive are created dynamically, so I wanted to ask if someone knows if it's possible to retrieve hotlinks of public Google Drive files.
