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?

If you want online storage with client-side encryption you might be interested in Wuala:

The datacenters are located in Switzerland, Germany and France.

The downside: if you forget your password you can't recover it.

I also vote for Wuala.

Well, if you state it like "if you forget the password nobody can recover it", I almost don't see it as a downside ;)
