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 know that a man's praise in his own mouth stinks but this is my spare time project which should solve all of Tom's challenges: http://www.peerdrive.org

It's more than a sync service but actually a file system which provides versioned storage, peer-to-peer syncing, encryption and is open source. As usual documentation is lacking but so is time to work on it. ;) Right now it's already quite usable, can be mounted through FUSE/Dokan, syncing works reliably and encryption was added just lately. But it's certainly not ready for productive use, though.
