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?

Ah, OS News, you really are the O'Reilly Factor of tech journalism; you do not inform at all, but you do an excellent job of entertaining. When I looked at the main page and saw 130 comments on something as profoundly insignificant as the launch of yet another cloud storage service, I new exactly what to expect. And Thom's write-up did not disappoint.

I can't wait to tear into the comments. I'm expecting glorious ignorance, frequent factual errors and rampant nationalism. I can't wait.
