[W8] Windows 8 to go full cloud, Skydrive gets deep integration - Page 2

post #11 of 93
Home internet upload speeds are not nearly established enough to facilitate cloud storage as the primary (or even secondary) real-time storage mechanism. This is a step in the direction where things are headed, but there needs to be quite a bit of internet infrastructure work (and IMHO price-reductions and bandwidth cap removals/increases) before people actually want to buy into cloud storage.

I like the convenience of "cloud" services where I need to keep track of various small items/files (like dropbox-type services), but it's nowhere near necessary (or practical) for primary storage yet.

I 100% agree!!! thumb.gif

Correction: US providers Internet speed is horrible while Europeans enjoy 100-1000 mbps connection at $20 / month.

I like it and i want it.

(chokes oneself to quell the urge that otherwise would force me to rant about unicorns, rainbows, pixies and other magical beings that like clouds.)

This. Most of my family lives in France and the Internet is awesome. Not only are faster speeds much cheaper, but there are no quotas and all the popular service providers have nation-wide hotspots bundled in so you can can connect basically wherever with your username and password.

Interesting, I already use the cloud for a lot of stuff. I use GMail for my email, GDocs for school papers and such (very convenient since I can start a paper at work and then finish at home), GCal for calendar/tasks, GContacts for Contacts, and GV for texts/voicemail.
