Still think Binfer is not a good deal and there might be something better and free out there? Is free software really free? You are paying for it in some way or another.
  1. You are paying with your valuable time. By either watching unwanted ads or spending time trying to figure out how it all works or getting throttled/inferior service.
  2. You are paying with your privacy. Free services usually collect your information, peek into your data and sell it to advertising/data mining companies. You get to watch even more ads "customized" to you.
  3. You are paying with your resources. Free software will usually install spyware such as toolbars or hidden apps that will use your computers resources.
A simple question for you. Can you give away services in your profession 100% free, without expecting anything back? Software is just like any other profession.
