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?

There is no mention of encryption on Google Drive, or at least I could not find any.

Google Drive currently uses the same encryptoin as DropBox; encrypt it yourself before saving to your gdrive/dropbox. ;)

using Dropbox to host Truecrypt volumes seems to be a popular method

That is a great tip, funny that I use both and yet did not think of doing that ;)
