A User’s Guide to Finding Storage Space in the Cloud
New York Times/Personal Tech – by MICKEY MEECE
One day, you’ll gather the grandchildren around you and tell them wondrous tales of life before cloud computing: how you used to put information, photos and music on a floppy disk, a memory card or a USB fob to carry it from one device to another.

They will look at you funny, pat your hand and continue to take personal cloud storage for granted.
