well i just want to point that the current services we have access to are really awesome, all of them, some have better things that the other but they are unique on some of their features, i've tested several of them and a new service will make no difference but only on pricing.

for example:

ease of use - dropbox sugarsync and cx.com
features - box.net
the cheapest - amazon cloud drive

if someone ask me what i would recommend i will say
for the tech savvy the choice is amazon c. d. why, because it offers a lot of space for 1.5 dls/yr per gb and you can setup gladinet for accesing it as a network drive unless they release a desktop app.

for the rest of the world would be DP, SS or CX.

i dont think google will offer something different but the cost per gb.

It may be heresy to some, but Windows Live Mesh is pretty good. I use it pretty much the same as Dropbox (for storage, not sharing), but with 5GB free instead of just 2.

They do a horrible job of marketing it (including the name), so I don't know anyone else who uses it, though.

I switched to it from dropbox some time back, I like the added "Logmein" style rdp over web thats included with it as well. I still use Google Cloud storage for my archiving purposes though

It sounds fine but it would have to offer some great features over Dropbox to get me to switch.

I really wish I could use my 7GBs of gmail storage as cloud storage, instead of having to email myself stuff. I should be able to have a special gmail folder in which I can drag files into so I can access them anywhere I can sign into gmail.

I thought there was already something like this that would allow you to access your Google cloud storage?
