No, considering how badly they fucked up Google Maps, I think you're right to be cautious.

Are you being intentionally obtuse? It would seem so, but sometimes it's hard to tell on
For all the wrong reasons. Spread your cheeks NJ.
Not a threat to Apple(tm). Apple fans are the least likely to leave their chosen brand. We android users are a fickle lot though, and I'll jump ship in a millisecond to Ubuntu if Shuttleworth can get his shit together on the mobile platform. Until the next thing comes along that tweaks my interest.
Free Trade! Unless the media content holders disagree or have some bizarre unwarranted suspicion that you come from a country of copyright infringers, as they obviously believe all Canadians (and all the rest of you) to be.
I'm more gobsmacked that people would spend money on any kind of vile utterance by that revolting pile of shit Rush Limbaugh. At least Rob Ford isn't published and his nation is limited to a bunch of suburban rubes.
I'm currently doing this with 2 3TB usb3 backups, and I have a copy of the data that I rsync at the offsite end. But still, it's a bit of a hassle, and there is still a small window of potential data loss that is closed significantly when using the cloud to backup. My biggest problem in Canada (with an absolute maximum upload rate of about 200KB/s max, is the time and cost to sync my data, basically impossible for anything more than about 10GB/day. Fucking ISPs in Canada all suck equally when it comes to upload.
Yeah, not really an issue, assuming we can trust gpg et al
You need two of those 1200 NAS boxes, and you have to replace failed drives, and you have to move storage off site in case of fire, theft, foo, bar. $1200 for 10TB of storage is so incredibly cheap. It was only 15 years ago that we used to sell 100GB NAS boxes for $100,000.
Until your house burns down.
And then his house burns down.
Please don't let his answer be vi, I really have no need to agree with ESR on anything. One thing I do find is that
I use a vim plugin that allows me to read a gpg encrypted file to get to my passwords, which lately are random 12 character strings of letters, numbers and symbols generated with pwgen. The system ssh account and the gpg keys should have different passwords. I avoid entering passwords remotely from secured systems using ssh keys (with ssh-add, or in more recent years this is handled by gnome). I do not want to put my trust in other password safes, especially those on smart phones. I do use firefox with a master password to store less sensitive passwords and feel relatively secure doing so but would never store anything like banking passwords there.
Because you're boring and anonymous.
Obviously. Jesus dug the canyon with help from His dinosaur friends. In a weekend. Without a shovel. Obviously. Praise.
