I am waiting for the pricing to come down. At that point I might store some backups, but only if the files that my computer sends are encrypted using military grade encryption and where my computer holds the only key. (I will keep the key backed up off line and stored in physically secure storage in multiple places, otherwise encrypting files is a recipe for losing them.)
Storing encrypted files precludes using cloud services that process information, e.g. allow editing data in the cloud or processing transaction data. However, it is possible to use cloud storage to hold encrypted information. If one does this it may be best to ensure that the file names are also encrypted.

unlocked all user accounts for 4 hours? Anyone using Cloud storage might want to look into using TrueCrypt to encrypt all their files before uploading to the Cloud. You can double by encrypting a file within an encrypted file. I take security seriously, others are too cavalier.

I'm very cautious of social networking sites but to lump them all into the single category of the 'evil cloud' is just wrong.... not that you are doing this, but others are.
I don't think Google or Apple intend to change the appointments in my calendar or the addresses in my address book entries. ;-)
Oh by the way, everything you post here on AA is archived and I'm sure the manufacturers and reviewers are examining all the fishes in the fish bowl. Somehow I end up receiving a few unsolicited ads every couple weeks from manufacturers and dealers whom I have never contacted on my own. ;-)
