Questioning iCloud's Future

          What are the ramifications of iCloud, and what is its future?  David Passell found this and says, "Though this only appears to affect Mac users in Germany, it might be something to consider for iCloud's future. I personally do not like the idea of entrusting my data, etc. to some unknown agency. To me, iCloud reminds me of the time when workstations all were connected to some large central computer. Is this progress, or a way to control and make money, for someone, from your on-line activities?"
