Amazon is offering a years subscription to their unlimited Amazon Cloud Drive for just $5, a years subscription to the service normally costs $60.
Amazon launched their unlimited storage option for the cloud drive earlier this year and you can store anything you want one the service, including files, photos, video and more.
You can find out more details about the Amazon Cloud Drive unlimited subscription over at Amazon at the link below. The cost of online storage continues to drop as Microsoft, Google and Amazon race to build out enormous online data storehouses. The chart above, reprinted from Gizmodo, compares prices and features of online file storage services from Dropbox, Google, and Microsoft with more or less similar services from Amazon, Box, Apple, and MediaFire. There are differences between the various services and you may well find something about one that is important to you and makes it the best choice.
OneDrive’s biggest advantage over the other services is only slowly being recognized: when you click on an Office file on the OneDrive website, it opens in an online version of the Office program, able to be edited with controls that closely resemble the computer version of the programs.

If you have been thinking about storing your ebook library in the cloud then I have some good news today; one of your options just got a lot cheaper. There was a time where I had my ebook library backed up to Dropbox, but there came a point where it grew to big to fit into the free 2GB. Google has Google Drive apps for Android, iOS, OSX, and Windows, so syncing your ebook library to the cloud is as easy as simply setting it up the first time.


One thing that remains still a competitive advantage of Dropbox premium is that their packrat feature which allows unlimited versioning. I’ve had my huge ebook library synced to my Google Drive account for some time and it works perfectly with Calibre Cloud by Intrepid Logic on my Android Tablet. Unless you need to restore the files on Google Drive to use with Calibre on your desktop, I think you should be fine.

The $5 price is for one year, after that it will cost you $60 a year, Amazon are obviously looking to increase their user base with this new deal. All of them are mature services, each with its  own strengths and weaknesses, but Microsoft is offering something that literally cannot be compared when it comes to value for money.
The price reduction last week (actually ten times as much storage for the same price) came along with some nice security improvements, including the ability to wipe out the Dropbox folder from a lost or stolen laptop when it comes online. The Office programs are tightly knit together with OneDrive, and Microsoft has made OneDrive and Office available on every platform that matters – computer (PC or Mac), tablet, and phone.
There are constant improvements to the online versions of Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and OneNote for editing, sharing and collaboration – now including simultaneous collaboration, allowing you to work with someone else on the same file at the same time from two different devices. The business version of OneDrive is improving but continues to lag behind the consumer OneDrive in stability, features, and the number of platforms where it can be used.
And since I didn't find the idea of paying for storage all that appealing (not when I am going to carry my ebook library around in my laptop anyway) I largely stopped using Dropbox.
I'm currently only using about 3GB of the free 15GB allotment, and that is mostly taken up by my Gmail account.
Except for Google Docs files, Google Drive only allows versioning for 30 days (even on paid versions).


I’m used to creating archival backups as a solution to versioning, and it would be nice to be able to stop. It’s very handy in the middle of those sleepless nights to download a new book to my tablet. I only ever created the copy on Gdrive for use with my tablet and I keep another two copies of my library on a couple of external HDD which I would use to restore from if anything went wrong on the desktop. Public libraries limit the audiobook titles theyJohn Stanton on Did You Know Audible Will Steal Away Your Credits If You Cancel Your Membership?Audible is Amazon, like Good reads. Last week Microsoft updated the Android OneDrive app with a glimpse of the future: the app allows access to either set of OneDrive folders and makes it reasonably clear which one is which.
It’s a nice website, but I want those shared folders right here where I can see them with my other files.
I’m hoping this will still work as the Calibre Cloud says you can email books to others. It will be helpful if Microsoft continues to bring the two services together in a way that reduces confusion. Dropbox has always synced shared folders, and there have been rumors for months that Microsoft would step up with a similar feature.
