As far as the 500 GB, that is more marketing then anything else. 99% of users would never using anything near that. So if they "offer" that, it sounds great but for most its immaterial. May some use it, sure.
As an extension of the local drive 500GB in the cloud is about foreseeing capacity by looking at recent history."The capacity of hard drives has grown exponentially over time. When hard drives became available for personal computers, they offered 5-megabyte capacity. During the mid-1990s the typical hard disk drive for a PC had a capacity of about 1 gigabyte. As of January 2012, desktop hard disk drives typically had a capacity of 500 to 2000 gigabytes, while the largest-capacity drives were 4 terabytes"
