Cloud Storage options…Which is best?

With many dropbox clones making their way into mainstream, I thought I would blog about each of them to show their strengths/weaknesses.

100GB – $199 year
Team option – need to contact for details

Apple’s i-Cloud – iOS, Mac, Windows

5GB – Free

Amazon’s Cloud Drive – works on both mac and pc

My recommendation: Dropbox or Box for ease of use. BitCasa for storage. Also, look out for deals from these services as they compete with each other. For instance, I got 50GB free for life from Box for downloading their Android app when it was first released.
