That picture is painful. I'd wager Mr. Aseem Bansal is not having a very good day.

Hey.That_Dude

Woops. GG, M$, GG.
and this from the people who want to make Win8 the new multi-platform experience and integrate it with the cloud!
This is why the cloud Idea is a BAD idea! You're trusting these idiots to guard your stuff, while giving hackers a clear choice about who to hack... Joe Shmoe or that big unencrypted windows server with all that juicy personal information.

I agree totally. There are some parts of cloud computing that I do like but this aspect of it is what worries me about it. I'd prefer to store all my information on my computer where I have control not in some central server farm that may or may not be safe.
