one way of "Killing the Cloud" would be to upload a "Pirated copy " of the next Hollywood blockbuster to one of these servers and then hope the FBI shut the whole thing down for months.
I'm not sure also how resilient some of these servers would be to concerted attacks either --at least on your local HDD if the device wasn't plugged in it couldn't be attacked and you'd have enough backups.
Judging by some of the "events" that have happened in the Banking industry recently with people being unable to get at THEIR OWN MONEY for in some cases as much as 2 months - and this is an industry that is meant to have almost as good security and backups as the Militiary - I certainly wouldn't trust any of my data to this type of service.
The other problem too is that you are a "Hostage" to whatever hikes in the Internet Connection fees your ISP charges-- you could find that for the SAME price as your annual fee for a cloud based service plus Internet access == you could buy a SMARTPHONE, a TABLET, AND A PC (all 3 items in one bundle) cheaper. Prices have a way to go yet but corporate greed always rears its ugly head when given a chance - and everybody is looking to find ways of generating new revenue streams.
Only I believe SKY in the UK offers a decent unlimited usage of Internet access bandwidth. Lots of others seem to get stingier by the month.
Same elsewhere -- although BELGACOM in Belgium is pretty OK - apart from the blocks they put on certain sites --- I don't mind them stopping child pornography etc -- but BETFAIR -- a perfectly legal Betting Exchange !!!!! - we get round this via use of anonymous proxies etc however.
Be interesting when one of the Cloud server providers gets raided by the police or the web site blocked !!!!!.
