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?

And to encrypt all data and obfuscate everything before i store it is just too complicated.

Ehh? Just about every archiver in existance can encrypt your files. All you need to do is to remember ONE password. I can't see how that can be 'too complicated'.

I have no problem with having my own creations backed up (encrypted) on a 'cloud drive'. Sure if I had something I didn't want CIA to know about then no, I wouldn't (and in this day and age I can't blame people who do really), but my own programs/graphics/etc, no problem. I just don't think Google or CIA is interested in stealing my creative works.

I continously backup my personal data on physical storage so putting it on a 'cloud drive' is just another safety measure with the added bonus of it being accessable from anywhere as long as I can get an internet connection.
