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?

Isn't Dropbox handing over data to governments and such, dependent on them decrypting it first?

So, if the data is already encrypted (prior to being uploaded in the first place) it can't be decrypted by Dropbox and handing it over becomes a moot point.
