Re: What do Competitors Do?
This is where it can get funny. I have Home User or Small Home Business clients who have installed half a dozen different cloud services without even realising.
They get sent one file as a Dropbox link, but then end up signing up for Dropbox in error and installing the application. (Very aggressive website that one, designed to confuse) We then add OneDrive from their Win10 upgrade. Office 365 adds OneDrive for Business.
They then updated iTunes and along came iCloud... so they click on it because their Apple "Genius" told them it would bring world peace. And they then wonder why their copy of Outlook 2010 has now gone mental.
And just to get the full set, they have a Google Drive running - but nothing in it. And no idea where that came from.
Oh yeah... and don't forget the OEM clouds that the laptop makers try and sell. Demos installed and never removed.
Add in a dozen apps that all busily checking online for updates, or "syncing" settings... and it does start to get a little bonkers.
Sometimes it is amazing that computers manage to boot up at all!
