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?

The main problem to host your own files, I think, is that most of us have DSL connections: correct download speeds, but really crappy upload speed. I think a fiber connection is necessary to get an equivalent comfort to Google/Dropbox/iCloud/etc.
