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?

Because I would still be subjected to and vulnerable to my country's god damn laws. ;)

Yes... citizen of the USA here. Unfortunately... as I keep being reminded by the bullshit the state and federal governments keep turning out in the form of anti-freedom, anti-privacy, pro-corporation. Ridiculous drug laws (Salvia divinorum was made illegal in my state--just the latest in a line of 100% natural drugs to turn people legally into criminals, federal government is surely trying its hardest to make it one of the highest-scheduled drugs nationwide)... and not to mention all the online and computing crap that passes here that's reported on here and on Slashdot seemingly all the time.

Good ol' USA... land of the free, home of the... ah, who the f*ck am I kidding?

Oh, and I forgot to mention... pro-religious-loons. You know, those "anti-drugs-if-they-make-you-feel-good kind of nutjobs. Those asshole Christians who get all these drug laws passed, because OMG! They're a crime against some god! Oh no!
