Uploading to the net, now known as the cloud, is not only slow but unreliable; connections fail or are simply not available. The same applies to downloading although that's faster. Anyone who relies on cloud services for their data is asking for trouble, frustration and inconvenience - and the continuing added cost of storage and possible upgrade of their internet service. Please don't take my NAS away!
The same applies to phones without SD slots; mine doesn't so I have an OTG with me at all times as I never know when the connection will drop or disappear.
Round these parts. the term is used to distinguish it from "The Brown'Un".
As long as they provide Notepad-as-a-service, I'll be ok.
If you want to be taken seriously as an ISP, hosting service, colo, or whatever, you must surely have a hot site that's not too close to the prime site. All manner of weirdness can happen after all: natural disasters, power outages, backbone connection failures, you-name-it. If it can't happen, it will. Gabriel and all others hit by this should look for another service and check that they have a hot site.

So if it's out of America, which country is Google based in then? I'm pretty sure it's just up the road from me in Mt View, CA but I could be wrong.
If Gates, Balmer or any other MS mouthpiece uses the adjective "rich" again, I will probably puke. I think it was last year, in a single paragraph, Gates used it 8 or 9 times to describe various content and functions; it's such a stupid word in this context anyway.
I agree with other posters that Gates (and Jobs and others in the top echelon of the electronic consumer products industry) are completely out of touch with the everyday realities the common herd face. They seem so have no idea of how people want to use computers, phones, etc and live with their "vision" while the rest of have to find ways of making the things actually work (where possible).
P.S. What's a "pidgeon"?
