    New way of using Cloud services


    Hi there
    Not necessarily Windows related but given the push that Ms is striving to force users increasingly to use the Cloud this to me seems an interesting way of doing this -- bypassing all the problems of having to give these companies personal data etc - and possibly even a way to supercede torrents themselves.

    Using a "global" space rather than your own little tidbit of a few GB / TB seems the way to do this if you really must use the cloud --also seems a perfectly good way to Share files as well.

    (Although the Title of the Link says BitTorrent it's NOT about standard BitTorrent but about Global use of DROPBOX space for sharing).

    BitTorrent

    Cheers

    Personally, I hope we are never forced into that type of situation. We already have enough problems keeping hackers out of our computers today. Moreover, sending all information from everyone's computers to a big cumulus hard drive in the sky (without space partitioning) would be a total security nightmare.
