Iím searching for a bit of advice. Iím still in school and I have been considering the future of cloud computing (http://www.jobs.net/Article/CB-70-Talent-Network-IT-Head-in-the-Cloud-Spotting-Hidden-Cloud-Computing-Jobs/). I canít help but feel like this is where we are all eventually headed. For example, those of us who started using email before we were teenagers have always stored things online. As almost connection was possible, it only made sense. Furthermore, once I started taking college classes it became even more essential to have all my documents in once place. So, for years Iíve basically just been using email providers and Google docs as my personal clouds. I mean who hasnít?

I want to hear from you:

Do you use email providers for cloud storage already? Doesnít everyone?

For those of you who pay for cloud storage, is it worth it?

Do you think that the security of the site is up to par? What are your precautions in terms of a security breach?

As usual, any and all responses will be greatly appreciated :)
