MacVoices #22040: Adam Engst of TidBITS on The Challenges and Benefits of Cloud Storage

More and more of our lives are moving to the cloud (or clouds), both at work and at home. Adam Engst of TidBITS discusses the pros and cons of the situation in an article on TidBITS and with us. Adam talks about his experiences with iCloud, Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft’s OneDrive and some others, and why it isn’t quite as perfect as we would all like. From simply buying more storage to some more radical fixes when things go awry, Adam shares some thoughts as you become more dependent on the cloud.
