Official Google Blog: Save more with Google Drive
We’ve lowered the price of our monthly storage plans to $1.99 for 100GB (previously $4.99), $9.99 for 1TB (previously $49.99), and $99.99 for 10TB
This makes Drive quite a bit cheaper than Dropbox for 100GB. Drive is now around £14.33 a year (12 months at $1.99/month) versus Dropbox’s £71.93 (12 months at $9.99/month). — CR

I wish it were easier for people to do this: entrusting your heritage to the Yahoos and Pownces of the world is seductively simple …but only in the short term. — CR
