You realize that most likely, this forum is also hosted in a cloud, right? So why are you not afraid to enter your email address here? Just like all Microsoft data, including Xbox Live, credit card, details,. etc

Please post a proof regarding cloud security issues and reliability, cloud is much more reliable because of it's scalability.

You simply don't know what you are talking about.

But this isn't being used for main storage and not being forced at all. Simply announcing that Windows 8 will include very deep, almost seamless integration of SkyDrive for those instances where you want to share files.

Are you all implying that uploading a file to a Cloud based storage server then attaching a link to that file to an email is any less secure then sending the file itself? Either way there is a copy somewhere on the internet that a hacker can get. If a hacker gets the email, the file is right there for him, with SkyDrive, you can set permissions for people in your contact list to be able to access it or the general public. In this sense, SkyDrive is safer for your data then emailing it directly.

Also for the bandwidth issue, this same feature helps you out too, once the file is on SkyDrive, you don't have to re-upload it to send it to someone else. You just simply re-use the link.

Not being forced eh? That's why all the big corps are pushing cloud hardcore now.

Personally I prefer to manage all of my data that way I know what's going on with it at all times. Yes cloud computing can have it's advantages, but if you know how to setup the services which you'd like to use then you have no need for cloud as you'd just setup your own servers. Obviously this isn't ideal for everyone and I don't expect it to be. I just value my privacy and prefer to keep my internet footprint at a minimum.

Specially since people don't really seem to care about privacy anymore, and want to share everything with everyone. While I don't mind sharing, but I DO mind sharing my business. So, I will keep my target for attack small by keeping my info off the web as best as possible.

Im with KusH, I hate this idea that cloud computing is pushing itself into a 'must have' market. The future of computing is undoubtedly atomic computers once we've shorted out the kinks like vibration/radiation interference etc... So why did I mention atomic computers?

Well because when that time arrives, my harddrive will be able to store 50 TB's of data easily meaning that all my data can stay local, easily accessible, will not require me to play a monthly rate for the service as well as bandwidth usage, and ABOVE ALL, I can make sure that it remains safe and secure.

I'll personally be sticking with Windows 7 for many years to come.

Cloud computing won't be feasible until ISP's remove their caps on data. As it is, trying to run through the cloud would render my entire connection useless, and would take days to backup my data.

We better have a full choice. Not everybody wants to, or has the option, to buy cap-less internet access that's equally as fast.

I hate the very idea of cloud...even as much as it would aid me professionally. There is just too much at stake and you can secure the cloud network as good as you want...it will never be as safe as storage that I can personally set access to and have sitting physically in front of me.

Sure, things like Steam Cloud for save games and the like are fine...but would you do the same thing with your tax information? Your bank information? How would you like to hop on OCN one day and see a MeMe posted using a pic of you that got hacked out of cloud storage?

I guess maybe if there was some benefit to it, but there are much better ways to go about it. In my opinion the only "benefit" to it would be that people with next to no computer skills could easily share information over cloud storage and that is probably the one group of people that shouldn't be going any where near cloud storage.

That's to say it will be available and affordable to the average consumer. rolleyes.gif

I embrace the cloud! I have nothing to hide, besides the most important things are in my email account and thats a cloud anyway.

I have too much data sensitive or not, to put on a free or paid for cloud server. I essentially use my home server as a cloud server anyways so meh.
