Google GDrive - yes, please
ars technica is spreading the good rumor that Google will soon launch unlimited storage for its users and they propose the question "will users trust Google with their data?"
I sure will. My experience in having worked with Google engineering in the past is that they are pretty rigorous about security and try to think through all the ways their systems can be gamed. They have some pretty ingenious engineers whose job it is to just try and hack things - and I'm pretty sure they usually succeed on the first try with most projects.
More than that though, Google demonstrates bar none that they know how to scale systems infinitely on a global basis, and if they want to throw ads around my search results when I search for a word doc on my GDrive, so be it if that's what it takes to underwrite the costs of unlimited storage.
Google Desktop is great, but a 2 Gig index file on my hard drive is a bit bulky for me...but I sure loved having those file results up there on top of my web search results. If this were all server stored and indexed and I could quickly get to archived files via some secure WebDAV equivalent, bring it on!

Is the GDrive Google's next big thing?
