Google Because of Google I/O going full-steam ahead, it's a bit of a Google thing going on here. Google co-founder Sergey Brin had a little chat with the press about the Chromebooks Google announced yesterday, and during that talk, he stated that traditional PC operating systems are "torturing users" with their complexity. While he certainly has a point, I'm not sure I like his solution. Giving Google all my files? Yeah... No.

Red herring. The alternative to moving everything to the cloud is not 'user loses all his data because his HD crashed' - the alternative is simply 'user manages what is his'. No more, no less.

Fact of life - "users" are crap at managing their own data. In fact, even the techies are rather crap at that. I know I forget to do backups, I bet you do too.
