Encryption only buys time and is continually divided by Moore's Law, while data can be copied and stored indefinitely.

    That is, I think anything you store on the internet is basically public domain ... and there's enough fools broadcasting their banking info and secret financial records all over the cloud to ensure a healthy population of hungry sharks will continue to circle around waiting to get another byte.

    I just use the cloud to store unimportant bloat data which I can't be bothered to save locally, burn onto discs, or spend a lot of time sorting through. It's also a great way to make off-site backups, provided you don't mind letting some corporation (which may revise their service terms and ownership at any time, etc etc) hold onto your stuff in some place half-governed by some foreign nation's laws. Joining the smart-dumb terminal trend on a powerfully distributed mobile cloud world is pretty damned handy - what a great place to store my playlists! - but I suspect I won't be the only cynic who holds back where it really matters.

    Now time to put my tinfoil hat back on, before they use microwave emissions start reading/controlling my mind ...
    amen brutha!!! preach on!!!!!
