Submission + - War of the Cloud Drives (Dropbox vs SkyDrive vs Google Drive vs iCloud vs Box) (

talbott writes: "Today, users have many choices for synchronizing files and backing important memories and personal assets including music, pictures, notes, business documents, and other personal or business files. Recently Microsoft and Google have upped the ante against Dropbox and Apple with their latest offerings. The offerings range from free to premium services, also known as the “freemium” model. Amazon also has some interesting benefits, such as unlimited music storage which I have started to use. Finally Box which also competes in the space for “personal” cloud storage may be better suited for company or team based scenarios. In this post I will cover some of the pros and cons of each and some common scenarios for usage. I will also discuss what you get for free, and what some extra charges will get you an how much it will cost (measured in gigabytes per month)."
