What -- before you send your next -- -- the cloud you wanna listen up to what mr.
Walt Mossberg has to say he has his head.
Well no he's finally his feet are firmly planted on Paribas.
Got to read this really bad plot behind but he has a review of for the big name cloud storage services -- -- -- -- I don't understand it.
We're glad I'm thrilled to be here guys sell these -- Dropbox sugar -- -- Microsoft's guy driving also -- Google.
A drive which is the new one another lot of similarities I notice the last two Microsoft and Google at least fairly inexpensive right.
Right -- one of them weren't things happen first focus is not a new idea there there have been companies doing this for a -- what this is is the idea that you can.
Put your files in the cloud synchronize them down -- different computers -- your mobile devices.
And in some cases even -- work on them and -- done -- collaborate in the cloud but.
Microsoft getting into this now on Google and of course they're big they have -- tons of money.
And they are are really under pricing the the other guy.
-- in terms of security while there was some news out earlier today that a few few accounts.
Were hacked into at drop box and drop box came out -- -- we've certainly improved our security.
But broadly speaking -- safe for these services.
Well first -- -- I I don't know everything about the Dropbox I think you're you're talking about I'm aware of that but they described it to me as spam.
Not so much going into people's accounts in getting.
Getting a look at your stuff but.
People being -- In terms of security nothing is purely and perfectly secure on the Internet as you know dig in and so.
I am unaware of.
Loss of security on file stored in these four services.
But -- certainly couldn't and wouldn't predict that it might not happen OK people out there trying to do that.
So then how do we or what's the best way Walt that we distinguish.
Between them -- -- people need to use one and -- and pick the best data mentioned security earlier I brought up cost.
Well here here here just are just very quickly talk about sort of and there are lots of features an all of these.
Microsoft spirit he.
Advantage in sky drive.
Is that it ties in closely with Microsoft Office.
There's an online version of Microsoft Office right in near that you can use and you -- and it also.
Will with one click let you us what your file from online so you can -- -- on your.
A PC or Mac by the way all these work on windows and Mac.
So that's their big advantage.
Google has something similar in that they have an editing suite built -- -- Bear's fault for Google docs which has been around for awhile.
Not nearly as many people use that as use Microsoft Office but it is an advantage.
Sugar sinks advantage is unlike the others which require you to have a special folder on your computer -- Everything you wanna store and sink in that folder sugar saying well actually synchronize and put up in the cloud.
You're existing -- so if you have full merger used to using on your computer.
Has an advantage there.
And then drop boxes advantage is basically -- it's the best known it's the most popular and it's very simple.
That would be my my quick you know kind of a high points of all of.
Thank you with Walt great to have -- back -- never enough time I know that in fact.
War wanna well you know -- we gotta expand the segment thirty minutes exact you know what I that we can actually talk to you for thirty minutes went to wake -- I can -- -- thank you so much take -- yourself to.
