As long as the servers are located in Mongolia we shouldn't worry about a server seizure ...

Can't wait. I've been using Google's storage for Picasa and Google Docs and is inconvenient to use for other files. I hope they could slash prices or increase storage. I can't seem to have enough of it.

They're only doing it so now they can even have access to what used to be stored locally by people and beyond their reach.

Okay, okay I'm only joking ...but what if I'm not? lol

If you are worried about privacy then use encryption.

And if you ever bother to read Google's User Agreement you will notice that anything you upload becomes Google's Property and they can do with it anything they want - and there's nothing you can do about it.

Why are they still pushing this cloud BS?

SOPA .... PIPA .... Megaupload .... FBI ....

Like I am going to trust my backups to this "cloud" house of cards.

They are marketing cloud storage as a way to share data with other people, so there is no reason to worry about it being taken offline as its not designed to be used as primary or even backup storage. If they limit the file types to media and office-type documents then they aren't really offering anything new since you can already do that with their other services. Still, it would be nice to have a central location to manage all of your online files. I'll give it a try, I just won't upload anything incriminating.
