    There will be a BB cloud service. They bought a cloud service business from Ireland a few months ago. I'll definitely join that service when it starts.

    Currently I use Dropbox, Box.net, and Evernote.

    Sign up with my dropbox and you will get an extra 500MB space.|

    box.net gives you 50GB if you signup on your playbook, but the file size limit is around 100mb so I use that for all my music and stuff and then dropbox for my videos...

    and the best part about the playbook is that you dont need an app to use these services (you can use the app if you want, but you arent FORCED to like on the iPad or iPhone)... just go to the site and all your stuff is ready to use

    I use my own domain. I mapped the remote directories on my laptop. I can login via the web if needed to upload and download when using other machines. Simple solution.

    We need to differentiate between cloud (offsite) storage and cloud services. Dropbox is just simple storage. Gmail is a service. If it doesn't compute, stream or deliver real-time, its just storage, and its been around forever. I'm in IT and I can tell you how much we laugh about people saying cloud when they have no real idea what it means. Let's talk SaaS or VDI or hosted Exchange. That's the cloud, not dropbox. We have been using offsite, remote storage for decades.

    Oh, and as for what cloud services I use, its called the internet. If anyone wants to know, the term cloud really came from network architecture diagrams in Visio, where the internet symbol was a cloud. Its nothing new, but the word cloud seems to make people believe its some new great technology.

    Yeah, sorry about that. I had to sit through a 2 hour cloud webinar yesterday from vmware, and i don't think there's any way to come out of that and be in a good mood.

    I remember when the "cloud" used to be called the Internet. I think before that it was called the World Wide Web. You kids and your word games.

    i can only go by what you were saying regarding the terribly exciting cloud webinar.

    i am trying to figure out which service i should use so i am going by the general concensus here.

    i will forsure go with RIM's cloud when it is active

    Drop Box isn't available for the 9790 with os 7 though I do have an account. Does anyone know if I can install it just with the cod files or something? Or a 3rd party app to access it
    Oh, and I use evernote for notes etc..

    Amazing how reliant people and businesses are the cloud. I use quite a few services myself but always backup locally. MegaUpload was a hard lesson for lots of people and other companies that provide 'free' services mine the crap out of your data or deliver highly targeted ads to you (google). Soon your favourite software companies will be in cloud making productivity impossible without a fast Internet connection (adobe). Last night one of my clients had their connection go out and I took about a dozen calls within 15 minutes with people completely useless and dumbfounded on what to do with themselves. It's just as bad as a complete power outage.

    Google I use for my contacts and calendars.
    DropBox for medium-large videos
    Box.net for my photography now that I have 50GB of data free from signing up with my playbook.
    Evernote I just signed up with to check it out... having a hard time really finding a use for it, but I'm sure I will eventually...
