Windows 7: Microsoft forecasting clouds - for everyone.

I've looked at quite a few and they are all the same in terms of use,
The exception to Onedrive is uploading Original file sizes is allowed,
Most others I looked at this was only for paying customers otherwise they compress everything,
I've heard dropbox was also an exception but Onedrive is on Outlook.com and Hotmail so it was a no brainer to use,

The only troubling thing was Microsoft handing Onedrive archives to WordPress I believe this is the Out sourcing Jimbo was referring to ?
Cheers.

How is it a scam?
It is a means of separating the user from his/her:
  • Money (unless you are using a fee-free "Cloud")
  • Personal info
  • Private data files

You obviously don't much about paid cloud services. The cheap ones are "scams" but the better ones are secure because your data is encrypted before it leaves your computer and you hold the key. As long as you are using a reliable service and use it properly (i.e., don't depend on it to be a sole data repository), it's well worth the money you spend. Those are not scams.

Have you not read my posts over the last few years?

If you won't listen to me, how about the legendary Steve:

Quote:
“I really worry about everything going to the cloud, I think it’s going to be horrendous.

With the cloud, you don’t own anything. You already signed it away through the legalistic terms of service...

the more we transfer everything onto the web, onto the cloud, the less we’re going to have control over it."

It’s all these subscriptions
… and you’ve already agreed that every right in the world belongs to them and you’ve got no rights.

When we grew up ownership was what made America different than Russia.”

SIW2, Steve Wozniak and me agree on this subject.

Again, it depends on what you use the cloud for and how you use it. M$'s business model? No thanks!

I'm not at all sure why you Lady... think Microsoft is different than any other paid for or free cloud service ?

They have the same terms of use,

But I do agree it depends on how a person uses it
Cheers.

M$'s and Adobe's cloud computing are different beasts from data storage/backups. Once Adobe Acrobat Standard XI reaches its EOL, if Adobe hasn't come to its senses, I'll be looking for another PDF creation/editing program. You can't paint the cloud with one paintbrush (well, you can but it wouldn't be right).

Businesses use cloud services under a contract agreement that includes a service level agreement. The contract governs the disposition and handling of the data, including security.

Free cloud service comes with no such agreement.

You get what you pay for. And you don't get what you don't pay for.

Besides the costs,
The disclaimers of loss of data are identical,
The same terms of use are identical on all cloud services free or otherwise,
Cheers.
Same??
Have you ever written a business contract with a cloud provider?
