Actually, MM users got 20GB of *additional* storage gratis for *two* years. Try pricing that option on Dropbox and see if you still think it was such a horrible deal.

This guy zBernie has a whack-job entitlement issue I won't get into. There are more than 320 million iCloud account users -- that makes it the second most popular cloud service behind Google. The record speaks for itself.

The 20GB additional storage option costs $20 a year -- Google's next expansion tier from 15GB costs $5/month ($60/year), but you do get four times the storage. If you need more than 5GB but less than 15GB, Google drive is a pretty good deal (I get 20GB free at Copy.com but that's another story). If you need more than 15GB but less than 100GB, iCloud is a better deal.

It's all a matter of perspective. zBernie thinks Apple is "blackmailing" him into paying $20 year, but doesn't think Google's harvesting of his stored data on Google Drive and the attendant advertising, profiling and marketing (which is how they pay for the service) "costs" him anything. Okay, some people think like that. Que sera sera.
