Clouding the Issues

Our lives are being lived in the clouds. We’re storing more and more of our data online with services like Dropbox and Apple’s iCloud.

Now Google has jumped on board with their long awaited Google Drive which offers 5GB of free online storage.

Some people have been sounding warnings about the security of storing private documents online but the convenience of being able to access our data from any computer or device is hard to resist.

On Wednesday during my Morning Café radio program on 98.5 Sonshine FM I chatted with our technology expert, David Cook. We discussed the whole issue of storing files online and looked at some of the pros and cons.
