" Tencent, a huge company in China, is looking to make a major splash in North America. How? " How can they afford to do this? By STEALING the files and software created by those who store it there. What better way to engage in cyber attacks than to have access to millions of American computers, when they install the Chinese software granting them free use of their files.
Youch, those are pretty over-the-top claims there, David.

It's sad, because that's the first thing I thought of as well. While the NSA here in North America does look at your data, the first thing I thought was the Chinese government will actually USE that data for their advantage other than counter terrorism.
10GB is awesome, but what safety nets are there to guarantee our data is safe from their government? I want to see that before I subscribe to something like this. There is no magical cloud in the sky, they will have physical servers located on their soil, containing our data. Until they can provide assurances about this, I will continue to use my limited dropbox space.
Kinda what NSA is already doing david? But many don't have issues with China looking at the photos of their cats
I've been told by people who should know that any data carried on any device that passes through Chinese territory should be considered compromised.
10TB is finally enough storage space to possibly persuade me to use the cloud. I only have 2TB of local storage at any given time so to have access to 10 would finally be an upgrade. However, I am still hesitant about reliability and security compared to local storage.
We already have the United States government collecting information on the American people, now we are going to open a door for the Chinese Government to begin data mining and collecting information on people. I GUARANTEE as someone in the Information Technology field with a strong expertise on security that the Chinese Government WILL be using this for NO GOOD!!
