I tried out Google Drive over the weekend, and despite it's new low prices ($24/yr for 100gb), it still can't beat Dropbox for at least 3 reasons.

1. No LAN Sync. I uploaded files using my laptop, then when trying to sync my desktop, they downloaded from the web, and it took forever.

2. No Subfolder sync. You can only sync top-level folders, so you don't have much control over which files you sync to which computer.

3. Photo Backup is half-baked. Google will backup your phone's photos to G+ and count it against your drive space, but your image files are nowhere to be found in Drive. 

The difference is that Dropbox feels very much like a part of your local machine, while Drive feels like my files live elsewhere.

Nope. I've had the gdrive app on my macbook handle the sync on parts of my data for a long time now. It's solid. I just wish it gave me a clearer picture on data transfer rate instead of just 'im uploading these 3 files at the moment', but I only really care about it during the 'first' backup. When its just incremental, its not even noticeable. I've never used it on Windows so I can't offer that perspective.

Her was really good. Just like the tagline, it's a Spike Jonze love story and all that entails.

I've probably been reading waay to much about Upworthy this week, it's almost like they planned it that way.

I had a note on my phone that just said 'Cat vs. Alligator' and I hope this is what it was referring to.
