MacWorld Propaganda Raises Good Questions
I have yet to find an online Apple community with any sort of concept of reality. That aside, MacWorld's anti-Google propaganda raises to interesting questions.

1. What sort of privacy can any online provider really offer you for your data, when governments can, and do bully businesses into giving up data; legally, and pseudo-legally.

2. What the hell is the point of these services? ssh/git/rsync let me do this over my own hardware, they're completely free, and they provide a more robust solution. The entire setup can easily be automated on Mac/GNU/Linux/BSD, and can synchronize multiple servers for redundancy.

There was an article in a major paper about this the other day, mainly about how ridiculous the "assertations" of invasions of privacy and loss of ownership rights are (They quote a section of the agreement directly before the legal wall of text stating in legalese, and plain english, that what's yours remains yours in all regards). Basically, the legal text is necessary in our out-of-date legal framework to allow porting and resizing the information into different formats compatable with different devices.

Also, wouldn't that same type of legal jargon be included when someone uses the "iCloud"? Or is it not needed, since they "invented" it?
