Chanson de Roland

I've never understood the need for the cloud for most people. With a little bother, one's personal computer, especially if it is a Mac, can serve as a personal file server that contains and serves all of one's files, music, videos, contacts, data, etc., to all of one's devices (e.g., smartphone, tablet, other computers, etc.) Yes, it is a little bother and does require some technical savvy, but it is pretty cheap to do. I just checked the online Apple Store, where a 5TB drive is on offer for $172 and 1TB cost only $82.00. Your Internet connection is an already paid cost. And Apple used to include in MacOS the applications that made networking a Mac an easy and practical thing to do. So setting up your Mac as your server with up to 5TB of storage should be practically doable, so that cloud services, such as iCloud, Dropbox, etc., are unnecessary.

And I suspect the same is true for a Windows-based computer.
