Having dipped into amazon's S3 and Cloudfront this week I have to say that 'though it's a great cost saving system for streaming video I found the jargon unecessarily confusing. Faced with buckets, distributions and a lengthy, techno nightmare guide it took me a while to get the thing in motion. I'm hoping the Cloud Drive doesn't throw up this same "trendy" hurdle. A folder is not a bucket ..... K.I.S.S.!!!!
