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?

I had never heard of pogoplug... That does look interesting to be honest. The marketing material for it makes it sound like it already offers remote storage built in - does it do synchronization out of the box? Is it OSS? I can't tell from the website...
