Re: A sane
"Gmail, Hotmail, Flickr, online VMs for testing the list goes on. People are already using online services for many things.
Woz is old school, he's an electronics engineer and hardware hacker. Why does his opinion count in the world of software and online communications?"
Wait till someone hacks into a bank email account outsourced into Gmail. Given the stuff stored in bank employee e-mails, it's bound to be a blast!
Security in the cloud (or insecurity) is something that should be taken into account, but in a lot of cases, isn't. And it isn't like data loss or hacks haven't happened:
- MobileMe wiping iDevices clean if you cancelled your MobileMe trial but failed to unconfigure MobileMe on the iDevice.
- the Danger SideKick getting mass amnesia due to Oracle RAC replication corruption.
- The Amazon/iDevice hack mentioned in the same article.
