Why do you store personal information in cloud services? I would never trust any company with my data. 1. The company can go out of business/close down service 2. Someone can hack the cloud service 3. An employee could hack/download files off the cloud service 4. Your things aren't actually on your computer, you have to wait for them to upload and download to the cloud service 5. Privacy issues, data mining, selling information to advertisers 6. Internet connection is needed to access data ---- For those of you who do use a cloud service, why? Wouldn't an external hard drive be easier for space, portability, and security?
