Legal This story is getting bigger and bigger. Even though most Americans probably already knew, it is now official: the United States government, through its National Security Agency, is collecting the communications and data of all American citizens, and of non-Americans using American services, through a wide collaboration with the large companies in technology, like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and so on. Interestingly enough, the NSA itself, as well as the US government, have repeatedly and firmly denied this massive spying on Americans and non-Americans took place at all.

I wouldn't exactly classify any of this as revelations. Maybe if you're truly naive or have your head buried thoroughly in the sand. Regarding your question, the question now becomes do you want to willingly hand your data over via "the cloud" or do you still prefer companies do it behind your back? The cloud is great and more effecient as it streamlines this process.
