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?

What is with this Raspberry Pi madness

Why does everybody forget the plug computers that were *made* for this type of thing? Pogoplug, Sheevaplug, Dreamplug...

Though something I've been keeping an eye on is this: http://rhombus-tech.net/allwinner_a10/hacking_the_mele_a1000/

The Mele a1000. Powerful, cheap hardware that is potentially *more open* than the Raspberry Pi. Offers SATA, beter processor, more RAM, PSU & Case etc. $100 USD from Deal Extreme (free postage) but around $70 USD elsewhere (plus postage). Plus you could also use it as a media-center at the same time.
