Data stored by an online provider is not, and requires only a subpoena, with a lower standard of proof required.
You can encrypt your data no matter where it is. To get the key requires a as much of a warrant with legal arguments on each side as a murder trial.

If I had such secrets that I was so worried, I would go even further. I would also hide the data.

How much can it be that is so important, unless you just happen to have the complete information on the theory and manufacturing of a hydrogen bomb and at least 1 sophisticated delivery system.

the problem is .... Google is not great at Marketing.... I was in a huge electronics shop today...in Japan...where I live... Apple..(and I am not an apple fan).excellent marketing.. displays everywhere near the front of the shop....Nexus 7 had to look to find it. Nexus 10 still only available via google play.... chromebook had to ask a sales clerk where they were. GOOGLE needs to promote... granted they may like the Tsunami aproach...but they need to push it outside of North Amerika....

Windows only has the inertia of its installed base going for it. Too much inbreeding in its management. Success ((at the company)) doesn't come from the marketplace, it comes from the boardrooms and hallways.

Look at Gates wife. Her big project was a failure, and she married the boss. On the other hand, maybe I am wrong about what her big project was.

Anyway, MS has inertia, has money, and has become stupid.

Actually the Surface RT is a great machine and the Surface Pro even more so --- however, MS just doesn't understand consumer marketing. They built the infinitely better mouse trap -- but they have no idea how to get people to buy it.

I get your point though I don't quite agree with "the infinitely better" phrase.

My wife would say that is just a "semantics" disagreement, and of course she would be right as usual.

I would say MS did a pretty good job. Just like with their first tablet lo those many years ago. Just nobody much cares.

Only twice has MS impressed me. Once with W95 and then with WXP. (Well that is post dos at least.)

Actually, they need to push it INSIDE N.A. as well. I can't remember seeing ANY promotional material for it.

No one knows THAT much about technology, the MOST you can hope for is becoming more trouble than you are worth. You are NOT untraceable to the leading edge of tracking technology, you are just not interesting enough to worry about.

Being boring, within the confines of this sort of discussion, is a good thing.

You look at "marketing" as Microsoft's flaw. There is some truth to that. But I believe that your premise that they "built the infinitely better mouse trap" is the greater flaw.

The Windows-mindset is primarily one of commoditization... where price is the overwhelming priority. Apple has been accused of catering to a boutique mindset. Those making the claims look no further than the raw specifications of the components included and place no value on things like device weight, device dimensions, and aluminum unibody.

Given that consumer expectation, Microsoft cannot release a product with no track record that in the consumer's mind has a boutique pricetag. Dumb.

Microsoft's failure with "Origami", Kin, perceived failure with Courier, poor press for Windows 8, significant loss of marketshare in the mobile space, and lack of longterm commitment to the Zune ecosystem, have a cumulative effect with consumers. Perhaps not directly with each individual consumer, but with those tech savvy consumers who are influencers.

Building a reputation takes time. Overcoming a poor reputation takes even more time. The tablet space is so competitive that Microsoft needed to hit a home run out of the gate. I don't know who the rocket scientist was at Microsoft that thought it was a good idea to take an overly ambitious gamble to merge the look and feel (but without software compatibility) between Windows Phone, Surface RT, Surface Pro, and Windows 8, but they should be thankful to still be employed.

Microsoft's corporate culture has calcified into a Fortune 500 mindset reminiscent of IBM in the late 70's. Until there is a cultural shakeup within, things will continue.
