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?

Yes, every country has it's own issues, BUT they are NOT pushed onto other nations.

The US has a policy of trying to be the champion of the world ("Playing Empire" as someone here put it). As long as this policy continues it will get praise for positive contributions and be blamed for negative contributions. Unfortunately the latter is the common case nowadays.
And yes, we (non US citizens) have the right to complain since we did NOT elect your government and don't want your policies being forced on us.

The smart thing to do here is not ridicule Europeans for their past mistakes (Monarchies and what not) but rather LEARN from them and NOT REPEAT those mistakes.
