Reg Article Title...
...And Sub-Heading Of The Year? I vote YES.
Re: it looks very similar to....
I seem to remember something very similar in the Lotus '97 suite of programs we had on our old IBM - specifically the diary, which also made the sound of turning the page as well.
I concur with all - this is hogwash of the lowest order.
I agree - with the other commenters
I like to know where my personal stuff is. Money is not personal (especially when most of what I have isn't really mine), so I am quite happy for someone else to look after it for me. Even so, I wouldn't say no to the odd bar of gold under the floorboards...
My family pictures, personal correspondance (I store all my email locally so I can peruse it offline), financial spreadsheets and so forth, I want to know where those bits are, and know that I have control over them. It is my responsibility to look after them (backups, RAID arrays and such). I am much happier knowing that MY STUFF is in MY HOUSE and not flung far and wide in some unknown warehouse that could get flooded, go up in flames and lose everything.
Whole-heartedly agree with the general feeling of comments so far. It will be a long time indeed before my modem will compete with even my slowest spinning lump of metal, and a long time after that before it can beat an SSD.
