Re: Isn't this a bit cloudy? Perhaps not
Yes, things are achangin'. It's not too often we take advantage of a long term deal to find that it's not really a deal that will last forever. Either the folks making the offer decide it's too expensive to honor the deal or they go out of business. Of course, if we read the fine print we'd see that the offer probably is subject to change at any time.

Re: IBM, Google, Apple, and cloud
Apple doesn't want to be in the infrastructure business. It's already in the cloud business. 

More precisely: Apple sells an ecosystem, with hardware at the foundation. The cloud is an add-on that provides additional value.

IBM, Google, Apple, and cloud
The antipathy is well stated/related, but more jarring to me was Apple's announcement of its partnership with IBM a few years back.

In any case, this is a significant move that suggests that Apple really doesn't want to be in the cloud business -- which, truth be told, makes me a little less bullish on them.

Re: Isn't this a bit cloudy? Perhaps not
I you haven’t reached your limit yet and have some time to clean up your inboxes perhaps a good idea would be start deleting stuff. It all depends on how much you use your Google storage. But if you want to keep everything you have, it’s just not much what you have to pay for extra storage. Again, it all depends on how much storage you need.

Re: Isn't this a bit cloudy? Perhaps not
The free storage space from Google has been a concern in the back of my mind for years although I'm not nearly close to the limit yet. But, when that might happen the question is to start deleting stuff, or just bit the bullet and pay extra.

Re: Isn't this a bit cloudy? Perhaps not
Well, yes, that would be ideal. :P I don’t know how it could work, but it was a nice idea. Perhaps more like a wish. I had forgotten about Google’s photos. But isn’t that also in the whole storage package that reaches a limit? I think all your Gmail, Docs, and photos use the same storage capacity. Or, am I wrong perhaps?

Re: Isn't this a bit cloudy? Perhaps not
Heh. If only Storj.io worked to directly offload data from clouds like Google Drive or Amazon... I'm not sure how exactly that would work, but it would be kinda cool. I'm sure someone is trying to scam these systems to get as much free storage as possible.... I know Google's "unlimited photo" storage policy has created an incentive for some geeks to turn their data into JPG files for free storage.

Re: Isn't this a bit cloudy? Perhaps not
I am very curious about Storj.io. That’s a good plan. You could test it with your Google unnecessary files and free some storage at the same time. :D

Re: Isn't this a bit cloudy? Perhaps not
Yes, yes. It’s still unlimited. But after certain limit Google gives you the option of deleting unnecessary files or purchasing more storage. If you are soon reaching your limit you may want to start thinking about what you want to do. When I first reached my limit, I started deleting old and unnessary files. Then I just decided to upgrade and pay for more storage.
