"In principle, any time your files are uploaded to a cloud storage company, you are compromising your security and privacy. Unless otherwise stated, you must assume that your files are accessible by employees of the company, no matter what encryption is being used. However, whatever the legal stipulations, the reasonable position is that companies cannot be seen to be voluntarily enforcing such content terms as it would create a chilling effect on usage. That is – if they can detect (what they regard as) objectionable content, what else are they recording about your private files?"

They should add a syncing feature, where I can sync files on two local computers.

Sort of like what Mesh does now (it's being discontinued in February).

The skydrive app (desktop version) allows you to select which files you want on that computer. It makes a separate skydrive folder under your user account.

It already does this.
Install the local Skydrive client onto your computer, then go to Windows Explorer, right click on "Documents", select 'Location' then move the folder to skydrive on multiple machines. I have been doing this for over a year on my work computer, netbook, and 2 home PCs and there has only once been a conflict where it could not figure out what revision of a file I wanted to keep.
When you change something on one computer, it will change it on the other machines very quickly the next time you log in. Just do not use the same file on multiple computers concurrently, otherwise you will have some issues.

Very handy.

[citation][nom]zugzug_64[/nom]I didn't think MS was a search engine giant...Google yes, MS no.[/citation]

MS powers Bing and Yahoo and has over 12% market share. While this may not seem like a lot compared to Google's 80%+, when you consider the amount of searches done across most of the world in any given day, 12% of those is still a lot.

Hitler could only have dreamed of "the cloud"... it would have been a wet one indeed.
ini hitler's time, people would have been "hiding" family photos with any visible dipctions of jewish culture.

What will the next oppressive regime target, and do you think you can predict what innocuous and arbitrary subject matter will be used against you or your children or your children's children to destroy their life?

try thinking with that brain of yours and shame on you for defending "cloud" anything
