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 live in a country with well-developed personal freedoms..."

So having the government spend 52% of your money (via income tax) is your idea of personal freedom? The highest bracket was at an astounding 72% not that long ago...and this doesn't include all the other wonderful taxes in the Netherlands, many of which, unfortunately, have been mimicked in the U.S.
