Apple "It's now been almost three full days. I don't know anything about their infrastructure, but for a web service to be down this long with so little communication, most 'maintenance' or migration theories become very unlikely." Downtime is normally just part of life, but three full days? There's something going on.

Not only does this speak volumes about the security of anything you store in the cloud, but even if you encrypt your stuff, reliability could be an issue. Thus, I don't really feel comfortable using the cloud as a primary storage source, even if the stuff I'm saving there isn't of a sensitive nature. For me, the cloud is definitely NOT the future, though I suppose as more and more stuff gets moved there, we'll all be dragged kicking and screaming.
