    Hey 5GB alright, almost enough for one blu-ray movie. :p
    Plenty for photos and music though.

    I love how Google is challenging Microsoft and Apple in every aspect lately, can't let them sit on thier hands collecting money and holding the worlds technological state hostage. Push'em.

    I want 2560 X 1600 120hz 30" LED monitors for $500 by Christmas!
    One can dream.

    Still no free option for those with 2 Terebtyes of photos. Come on Google do this and permit this amount of storage and every pro/semi-pro photographer will use you.
     
  5. Lol if you have 2 TB of photos, you might as well setup your own backup server.
     
  6. I'm sure if you want to pay for 2tb of storage they'll have a way for you to do that.
     
  7. At the moment, I'm still happy with SkyDrive!
     
  8. Google currently charges $512 per year for 2TB of storage on Google Docs.
     
  9. Dropbox works great...I don't trust Google anymore...They could offer me 25GB like skydrive and I still wouldn't use it. I try to stay logged out of their services so they can't track me. To bad Google use to have good stuff till they decided they wanted to be evil and take on Facebook and now they have lost their way.
     
  10. Most fail to understand the whole Google picture.

    Photos - Picasa which offers unlimited and free storage
    Music - 20,000 songs
    Videos - Youtube (which is being synced with G+) which offers unlimited video space (videos dont have to be public)
    Docs - for documents and stuff

    Everything else would go on Google Drive. A Google account is not just one service, its the full cloud solution
