"Hack into Google," haha... That's a good one. Who do you think employs more rigorous security measures, you or Google? Who has so much more to lose and therefore that much more motivation to keep things locked down? I'll concede that that paints the big G as a far bigger target to hackers, but being a multinational corporation running an estimated one million servers worldwide and processing an approximate daily quantity of twenty-four petabytes of user-generated data every single day, I'd bet the contents of my Google Drive that the folks over at Mountain View have considered this from quite a few angles.

Location will always determine the quality of the connection and users will not be satisfied with interruptions.
Next challenge will be the creation of offline apps that work with multiple users concurrently. We will have to have elaborate mechanisms to synchronize data.
I think there is still a lot of work to do and I like it !

Yes, I know that argument. I used to be more of a believer like you. As time goes on, I think nothing much beats a robust local backup, even as I and others move ever more info and interaction to the cloud. In some sense, the whole Internet is hanging by a thread, and it does seem to threaten to unravel some times. Hopefully as time goes on it will become more robust and less flaky and vulnerable. I am not so sure. Use the cloud, back up locally.
