My experience with using "clouds" has been a good one so far, I really take advantage of using google's cloud package when doing group work. I have found google slides to be one of my favorite apps to use with others because each member of the group can be working on the presentation at the same time and see what the others are doing immediately so there is no need to try and piece together all the partners powerpoints. It allows for communication and I could see how it would be extremely helpful in international or corporate law to have utilities that google provides, as the opposing counsel may not even be in the United States.

I will admit that I am not a fan of the data limit that the icloud has and that they make you pay for more cloud storage. I don't see how a cloud could possible be "full" if it is virtual, but I could be missing something that explains that a bit more to me. 

All in all, I love the usage of the cloud and more advanced technology, it makes everyday tasks and communication much more simple and convenient.

I use an online fax. All faxes come to an email in PDF format that I get no matter where I am. I would never go back to a stand alone fax as it costs too much (phone line, paper and toner).
