How about offering 1.5 gb to all the free users, and giving us paid subscribers 20gb more each, just a thought.
What you keep ignoring is that your experience isn't universal. I'm very happy with iDisk. What is it that makes "I had a problem with iDisk" turn into "iDisk is a steaming pile of dung that no one could possibly like"?

I for one applaud Microsoft, DropBox, SugarSync, and all the other cloud-based storage offerings. If you want to overspend for basic online storage synchronization, just to put an "i in front of cloud storage, then by all means give up your hard-earned money to Cook, who will gladly pad his bank account.
Overspend on basic online storage synchronization? iCloud is free. How is that overspending? I can understand the complaint that iCloud is missing some key features, but overspending isn't an issue.
And "excellent but overpriced"? That hasn't been true for many years.
iPhone - right in line with the competition both subsidized and unsubsidized.
iPad - name another 10" tablet with equivalent features for less
Mac Pro - easily competitive with competitive workstation class products - particularly with dual CPUs
iMac - name another 27" AIO with equal quality for less
MacBook Air - The competition was unable to beat Apple's price and needed subsidies from Intel
MacBook Pro - more than cheap generic laptops, but easily competitive with systems of equal quality
Mac Mini - Higher than generic PCs, but in line with other similar sized products
OS X - $29 compared to hundreds of dollars for Windows
OS X server - $500 with unlimited licenses. Windows Server with unlimited licenses is many times higher
So where is the 'over-priced' product?
