50 GB from drive is nice I agree, but I rarely use it because of the file size limitation...

So on Drive the problem I have with is the android app kind of sucks. I don't need the alphabet showing me where I'm at between files. It makes it show a lot fewer files at a time.. I want just a file explorer kind of view. I need the ability to add folders. And the worse thing is where are the files after I make them available offline? Like if I store android files and then make them offline for phone use I can't access them outside of the drive app unless I'm missing something.

Things that will change in time I'm sure, but for now since I primarily use my android devices over PC I have still been using drop box mostly other than to est stuff.

The terms that scare me, also from the Nexus S thread:
