Right now it looks like "Cloud Computing" is just a new term to make something old sound new.
For business it is a good method, this has been going on for many years.
One company I worked for had a private commercial intranet in 1985, believe it was recognized as the first.
This has many useful aspects and is good as long as the Company has full control over the Company data.
For private use, a little data storage is all I use, web storage for pictures and a few files I want to share with someone.
I prefer to keep my personal files and data within arm's reach, for access and security.
Inevitably many people will use it, then complain when their personal data, files, records, are lost or stolen.
As always your personal safety and security primarily depends on only you.
Still room for Improvement in many areas.
