...is NOT safe and I don't think it ever will be. The cloud is stated to be the 'hottest' technology right now and that's just because it saves big business BIG money in LOCAL IT costs. Big business wants big money and they will cut anyones throat just to get a bigger bottom line.. and of course it looks "cool" to be in the cloud in the business world.
