    We have handfuls of Samsung Galaxy's at work. My wife and I each have one at home. I have friends who have them. I don't recall a single broken Galaxy. I do however know of many, including those at work with iPhones with broken screens.

    Agreed, it's not for everything. I've not yet heard of a single cloud proposal which completely removed any potential for local storage and forced you to only be in the cloud.

    I don't want my tax returns in the cloud...but then again my banking is online, my credit cards are online, my paychecks can be looked up online, my mortgage is available online, my school loans used to be online (before they were paid in full) the vast majority of what compromises a tax return is already out there at no doing whatsoever of my own.
