  1. Confusing and Misleading
    iCloud- First 5 GB free
    Then

    $20 per year for 10 GB
    , $40 per year for 20 GB total,
    $100 per year to store 50 GB

    People might think that they will get 15 gb (+5gb free) for $20

    1. You dummy 5 free if u need more you pay or the 10 more for a total of 15

    2. Also this storage is not counted for anything you have purchased on iTunes. So TV shows and music don’t count against these figures.

    3. No one will look at it they way you are.
      It is the same as any other storage upgrade.

    Google gives you 20GB for $5 per year for storage in google docs.

  3. Dropbox anyone?

    1. It’s Only 2Gb for free. After That you have to pay.

  4. Apple fans will just bend over and take anything from Jobs and his ilk wont they! No user experience is worth the forking over more than tech is worth just to slake the corporate greed!

    1. That`s the truth.Apple is a gimmick.
      Look…the genie went into the bottle…and my icons wobble ! WOW ! So stupid.

    2. IMHO Google’s price is more than I’m willing to pay.
      Ads as well as personal information.
