This is the kind of thing that could flourish with Google Fiber. I have really no idea about the history or true security policy of this company, but what they describe is the next incremental step in cloud storage.

How is this different than the other cloud storage providers such as Dropbox and Google Drive?

Services like Dropbox and Google Drive are cloud syncing tools that take files stored on your hard drive and back them up to the cloud. You're required to keep your files on your device in order to access them, which can take up hundreds of gigabytes of precious space and fill up your device. Streem stores everything in the cloud, instead of on the device, and streams the files to you on-demand when you access them, saving you tons of space and time.

Google Drive uses local space if you use their desktop application to sync files. That's what I used to do, but the way it worked was unintuitive and caused a huge headache of duplicated and deleted files. Of course Streem holds the keys, but as a direct competitor to DropBox it's worth a try. The only sensitive files I put in DropBox now are encrypted locally before I upload them. This kind of service is for convenience, not security.

Drug use criminalization guarantees a steady slave labor force.
 
A 48-year old black man who was stopped and frisked, without cause, while riding his bicycle, was sentenced to 13.3 years of hard labor in prison without the opportunity for parole for possessing the equivalent of two marijuana cigarettes.

Nobody outside that industry thinks this is a good idea, not even people who consider themselves "tough on crime."

I hadn't planned on seeing this film. Plans have changed.
"In real-world terms, Winter Soldier basically says that the NSA was invented by Nazis…and that we let it happen, insisted even, giving up our freedom because we were too afraid to do anything else."

The people of the world are taking notice. If you want 100% security there are plenty of prison cells.

YES: Shooting stuff. K-9 enforcement. The SWAT team. 
NO: Public service. Walking beats. Community policing.

The atmosphere is wonderful, and I enjoy going there to relax, but the coffee just isn't very good. I make better coffee with my Chemex. If the brew is your highest priority, move on. If not, you're in for a treat.

It's a little bit of Portlandia! The waiter knew exactly what to say and ask after I ordered a vegan item. The outdoor seating is beautiful, quiet, and relaxing. Cash only is inconvenient so plan ahead.

I bought paint here. I came back a year later with a sample and they said they couldn't match it, and advised me to go to Emighs instead. That was excellent advise. Now that I've been to Emighs a few times, I realize how horrible the service is at Home Depot. I am never coming here again.

They damaged my oil drain plug and blew up a gasket. My car reeked of burnt oil every time I drove it afterward. My engine was nearly ruined. I had the damage repaired by a local mechanic who charged me less for the work and a new oil change than Jiffy Lube charged me to screw everything up. The only thing the Jiffy Lube guys did successfully was to pressure me into paying for a dozen upgrades to my service.
