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?

As interesting as I find the news about Google Drive, I'm much more intrigued by the five things Thom has done that would land him jail time in the US.

Gentlemen, start your speculating in *three*, *two*, *one*, ...

It's nothing exciting. I'm rather boring and law-abiding, actually.

You can't get rid of speculation that quickly. Have you seen American Movies made about your country in the last ten years?

if we take the argumentats of the austrian government (i'm from austria) as an example you are at least:
* a terrorist
* a child-molester
* killing thousands of people every day with your homemade drugs

and all that just because you appreciate your privacy...

You forgot Fiona Apple. How about this:

Forcing a gang of scout girls to sing Fiona Apple songs until unicorns turned red.

1. Forcing kids
2. copyright violation
3. torturing animals
4. count that twice: torturing endangered species
5. organized crime (or do you know another way to obtain unicorns?)
