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 small sliver of US Americans getting ridiculously rich off of the arms business wouldn't like giving up their lifestyle. You think the people who started wars to give Exxon and Haliburton a free ride will back off if asked nicely?

There's a substantial percentage of Americans who agree with you, but Occupy is the first time I've seen them really represented.

Just trying to get things righted, here, before there's nothing left to do but go ex-pat and be your new neighbor.


Occupy is a poor attempt - people standing around (and getting paid to do so) while committing horrible acts of violence and assault (such as the reported rapes that have occurred) isn't what I'd call a good example of anything.
