    Not a complete surprise. With Microsoft (SkyDrive) and Google (Google Drive) in the market, Dropbox is going to feel a lot of pressure against big competitors that can afford to offer prices well below their own capabilities.

    Even with this discount, it comes to (for 100GB)
    Dropbox : almost $100/year (or $1/GB/year)
    SkyDrive’s almost $50/year (or $0.50/BG/year)
    GDrive’s for almost $60/year (or $0.60/GB/year)

    They still have Sync-over-LAN, though.

    You forgot to mention one thing. Dropbox is also adding a 500GB plan to the mix.

    yeah, they still make it pretty expensive..
    one of the biggest advantages of dropbox tho, is its app because it works cross-platform and even with the iOS/Android devices. (also great because of the sharing URL)

    I’ve kinda liked Skydrive since they finally made their desktop app because its fairly similar to how dropbox’s works, though at launch Gdrive did come out a bit week with its app, because it was missing features that even Skydrive had, such as easy to share links, google’s way of doing it was harder and more confusing.

    I have 142 GB for $100 or $0.70 per GB for a superior service. It’s easy to rack up free dropbox space. Google drive blows and so do all of the rotten partners they use. I deleted it after two days.
