Hey, I'll be there!

Nice - nuff said really. Upload something to Google and you give them the right to do pretty much whatever they want with it. They might well say "limited purpose", but I don't really want stuff I created to end up being used by Google to further their ends without any benefit to me.

I still wouldn't use it for anything to personal or important though. At least, not without encrypting it locally, first.

I have a dropbox account and do use it quite a bit for various things - mobile backups (as Titanium Backup integrates well with it), for transporting files that are too big to email and for sharing files (e.g. my CV) with third parties, without having to worry about sending updates all the time.

So the likes of dropbox, Box and Google Drive are useful; however I wouldn't regard them as my primary backup for anything and wouldn't store anything on them that I wouldn't want others being able to see. Treat it like a drive share on a company network

yeah, I guess using it as a backup is a bad idea, but transferring/sharing files would work.
Like artwork, music, games... etc.

Oh, and I like to put my taxes, bloodtype, credit card numbers and intimate information about my family on it too!

Speaking of search engines, Google no longer comes with Mint!

Mint has worked out a revenue deal with Yahoo, Duck Duck go and several other search engines that will be paying Mint when Mint users access thire engines...

For me that's a win win deal, No more Google and Mint gets paid! ":O}

Dropbox and the rest are relatively expensive.

I have FTP on my PC and phone. So, I can just store files on AOA's server or my own little NAS drive at home.
