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?

Also, Thom, I've not commented much, but I visit the site almost every day. I've noticed a distaste for the US lately. If you aren't from the USA, that pretty much means you're under bought and paid for news media outlets that's telling the world to hate us. It's the best way to knock us off our high horse, except it won't work when we blow a hole in the middle east and everyone's like "OH US OF AMERICA WAS ON THEIR HORSE ALL ALONG!" (oh you got offended? *trollface*) I'm so sick of people thinking we're the bad guys when we've done so much for the world. Maybe we didn't invent the automobile, but it was OUR MARKET that made it obvious how to make expensive things affordable for everyone, not just the elite. It was our people who discovered the automated clothing looms were on an "on/off" basis, which lead the way for computers. You're welcome.

Your rant is completely nuts. Thanks for proving Thom right.
