I bet some people with brains also might have dimmers. Even the best dimmable CFL dims nowhere near as nicely as a good incandescent. Some high-end LEDs dim a little better but hum and flicker is still a huge widespread problem with these. Some people with brains also like saving money. CFL only saves money after quite some time - for short term applications incandescents are a cost saver.

An advantage of Cloud Connect was that files could be easily accessed and edited from the drive without having to save all your drive contents locally."
