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?

They seem to be trustworthy, their blog entries are interesting and give off a sense of honesty... and unless they're lying through their teeth, the zero-knowledge client-side encryption is exactly what you want.

Yes, you have more control on a home server, but how much redundancy does that offer you?
