    I have mixed feelings about cloud computing although I do use Drop Box. Here's what bothers me: I'm 81 years old and I have data out there--somewhere. I don't know when my number's up--well none of us knows when our number is up. So I have all my data out there and no one else knows about it except me. They say that there is no such thing as a dumb question, but here's one that might come close. When happens when I die and I haven't deleted my data? Does it just stay there, or what??? I know it's a little bit of a funny question but I have always wondered about that.

    that's an interesting question. I guess you will live on forever through your abandoned data...

    Maybe if I go to Heaven, I can retrieve it. But on the other hand---what if I don't? Seriously though, I wonder if after a certain period of time, if there has been no activity, it will be deleted.

    here's an example of why Skydrive should go alongside your other cloud options. for the nice integration with Windows 8 and the third party apps. I was checking out PicTRO which is a third-party app that pulls pics from deviantART and then sending pics to skydrive:



    I used Camtasia to record it which produced a terrible framerate. I really need to get FRAPS going on this machine.
