Google Well, this has been a very, very long time in the making. Google has finally unveiled its big Dropbox competitor: Google Drive. You start with 5GB for free, and you can go all the way to 1TB for $50 per month. This is a big deal for many (if you were to use rumouring as a gauge), but all I can think of is this: why on earth would you entrust your files to a company - any company - whose sole interest is extracting money from you, and who, to boot, is subject to crazy American laws?

I have a QNAP NAS box. I can get to it anywhere. I don't even need a static IP to do it.

I own the box. I own the drives. The content is mine.

My total investment in this thing is ~$500, and I have 2TB of storage. At $50/month/TB, it's paid for itself in 5 months. Silly.

As for off-site storage, I have a safe deposit box for that.
