Yes, because taking a photo on my Windows phone, hooking it up to an external hdd, transferring photo, then bringing hdd to my home PC, transferring that photo there and then bringing it to my friends PC to show it as well is a way to go. Hopefully, I won't ever have to use access a word document on my PC when I am traveling, otherwise, I'll have to bring my whole desktop machine to the airplane as well.
This is the true power of Cloud, easy access to the files you want when you need them, wherever you need them. doesn't mean you have to use it, and doesn't mean it's the only place the file exists.

Facebook is not a Cloud service, when I can access the same document on my laptop, work computer, HTPC, phone, and friend's tablet, edit, re-upload, integrate all changes made, all seamlessly using Facebook, I'll call it a cloud service.
