I'm missing the "owns all your content" bar.

wow that aeroFS thing is awesome. they mention it at the end. it lets you sync stuff between computers, not between cloud. and it sync over lan or internet. Great if you have a laptop and a desktop you work on regularily. So you can have one "work" folder.

Well I checked dropbox and they certainly don't claim ownership of your content...but still....
I've got a massive issue with cloud storage and cloud computing. If you want the world to devolve into owning licences to use soft copies on a single screen in your living room (which just points to a server you have an account with) then keep using these services.

Personally I like having hardware in my house to tinker with. I love my xw8600. I love my nVidia card. I absolutely detest companies like "onlive" and all this cloud storage rubbish which takes you down the road of pay per use computing.

You are minimizing the incredible possibilities this may have. I love dropbox. I can render stuff to it and while I drive home then check on the results later, then share the link with someone.

a nice thought regarding the missing "owns all your content" bar ...

I won't be getting rid of my dropbox account until nobody else asks for it, and use whatever clients / associates prefer.

Internally / for my own use though, I think google drive will be mostly used. I'm not too concerned about the ownership clause... I just see it as a way they can retain the right to scan everything for advertising purposes without crossing any invasion lines - legally speaking.

I'm happy to see that Joey, Justin, JC, Lance, and Chris now do cloud hosting.
