MacJury #1207: Cloud Storage Options, Benefits and Compromises, and Products That Don’t Exist Yet
In the last few weeks, the options for cloud storage have exploded, but with minimal diversity. Are some options better than others? Who owns the data you upload to the cloud? How does each service perform? Who do you trust? These and other cloudy issues are pondered and discussed with humor, caution, and maybe a little paranoia. Then, with equal seriousness, the panel talks about some products that don’t exist just yet, but that they would like to see and have. No science fiction here, just some options that developers might want to pay attention to. All this and more is offered by the panel of Mark Fuccio, John Martellaro and host Chuck Joiner.
