  • PCWorld Review A better, more secure alternative to cloud storage I love the cloud. I depend on it. The cloud allows me to access my data from any device at any time; from anywhere I have broadband access. And I can share some or all of that information with other people: A boon to productivity when I'm collaborating with someone. I've become so addicted to that flexibility that I'm willing to pay a subscription fee, even though I don't trust the service provider to keep my information entirely secure. I never put anything sensitive in the cloud, such as my tax returns or other financial data. And I never rely solely on the cloud. I always keep backup copies on storage devices that I have complete control over.
