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 are over 320 million of us, so we're not ALL like roracle, but I'm afraid his feelings are quite common. Wire-tapping without warrants, scanning all e-mail, having ISPs turn over logs, and mining online data are all perfectly okay despite our clamor for smaller, less-intrusive government. We're still better than Iran or China, mind you, but I think it's perfectly reasonable to be afraid of the US government denying you a tourist visa for storing a copy of "Mein Kampf" on your Google Drive.
