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's also SparkleShare if you don't need the stuff to be stored encrypted.

It's basically an open-source clone of the Dropbox client that relies on git for the server and SSH for the transport encryption and public-key authentication.
