Google Calendar Has Been Redesigned, How About Google Docs?

Google Docs, as well as Google Drive, is a huge business for Google. Throughout high school, and college, I've noticed that fewer and fewer people use Microsoft Office, and choose Google Drive. Of course, when something works, don't break it. However, some things could be improved.
