I know it will not happen but people need to wake up. Companies have
very bad records of keeping our private data private. They will give
our data out at the drop of a hat to most government agencies like the
CIA. They loose data. They get hacked, even Google has been. And they
just love to sell and trade data by writing very loose user contracts
that let them (naturally most users don't even read them). Do you
really trust them enough to have all your firms office info on Google
or some other companies computers,? How about that love letter you are
writing? As long as I can, my private data will be on my private
computer and often backed up and encrypted when need be.

Do you think that Google would put all their companies data on an MS
cloud computer and feel safe? I think not! Why should we?
