  1. This looks awesome, EXCEPT…..I’m not a supporter of the cloud. Because in all reality this “cloud” they’re trying to get me to use for all my data? Is just a number of computers that exists elsewhere, and since I cannot verify that ONE or two of these machines are not residing in someone’s basement, mining my data for pertinent information….I’ll have to take a pass on this. I wish everyone would stop trying to get the masses to sign up for all manner of cloud technologies, I’m a firm believer in keeping my data private, this is why I use External USB HDD’s (2TB / 4TB / 8TB) and keep my data with me. And with all the stories in the news today of company breaches, all manner of leaks etc…..why would anyone trust ANY cloud company? Just seems foolish to me.
