Is crapware completely destroying the user experience for a non-geek user?

Being a Jottacloud customer for a long time, I really like their backup. Unlimited storage is 6$ per month. You can specify when to back up, and you can exclude subfolders from sync, and you can limit the bandwidth used.

I guess it's not very well known in the US, but it's been for several years in Europe. All servers are located in Norway.

Unlimited is limited to one computer. Jottacloud.

People have tried for so many years now, and I think we are seeing a trend here now. It's almost impossible to create a flying car that hoovers stable with the technology available today, tomorrow and I predict the same for the next 30 years. And even if they get them stable, the cars will be so dangerous concerning in-air malfunction that they would require a complete double set of engines and fuel and at least two pilots.

You do the math.

So many have tried. So many companies has invested and lost their money. Still people seem to think that this will come and they think of how much they could earn in patents etc if they are able to materialize a stable solution.
