Dropbox rival Yahoo Box! reaches 1 million users in 3 months in Japan [thenextweb.com]

The service is similar to Dropbox, and other Web-based storage services, and Yahoo Japan ID users are given of space 5GB for free. Those Japanese Internet users that hold a premium Yahoo Japan account — which costs 295 yen ($3.80) per month and enables a series of services including auctions – are entitled to ten times the space of regular customers, and they receive 50GB without charge.

I just went to the dropbox website and there is a video that says: "Dropbox let's you bring all your photos, docs and videos anywhere.

5GB space: That's the photos of a one week holiday nowadays. Not to mention videos. Even 50 GB or 100 GB is hardly enough.

I need Terabytes not Gigabyes.
