"The "Cloud" is a surveillance and intelligence gathering apparatus of the population."

Really? Really?

Cloud services, Dropbox, iCloud, iDrive, etc are best for offsite backup only. If you are stupid enough to put truly confidential information, not just copies of your Starbucks receipts, then gay gezunt and good luck.

You are at risk in one way or another regardless of where your information is stored, even in hard copy. Consider the risks, way the alternatives, make an informed decision based on your needs and resources. That's all you can do.

That's why I don't use it and never will, at not least for sensitive info...I'll give up computers before trusting anything but my own backups.

Best to have nothing, do nothing. LOL. But your absolutely right, if you do anything electronically, even if someone does it for you...your at risk regardless the precautions we take. Where there's a way....
