Jumping back here again...I have some flash drives, and a small 2 TB external drive the size of a large cell phone. I can toss it in my drawer, my pocket...wherever. No matter what happens to the net....Ive still got all my years and years and gigs and gigs right with me. Offline.

I have 4-5,000 songs, 5-6oo videos, a few hundred movies, and complete "C" drive info from 2 pc's and my laptop. Home. In the drawer. Not out floating on a cloud.

With this recent incident, it PROVES what Ive been saying. But? Let me ask you all a simple question....

"Did you ever delete something you never wanted anyone you know to see...even a long while ago?" Well now. With these leaked-recovered deleted photos?

Yours is STILL OUT-THERE.........just think about that.

Yes, backing up to an Apple server is "cloud computing".

My data stays local in my possession, physically on a hard drive I have control over. It may be handy if you loose your phone to restore from a "server" someplace "out there" -- but I don't like having someone else holding onto my data.

Apple are saying the cloud was not hacked but the passwords were found/ hacked.
Idiots taking nude selfies.

It's not a case of consciously sending the data to the cloud. Unless you have disabled
the automatic backup feature, your pictures will be sent unrestricted to the web without your knowledge.

Unless of course your intent is to draw attention to yourself by showing some tatas in which case you deserve all the attention you can get.

I had a bug up my butt. You're right, I was being a little nasty. Apologies.

I had to eat dry food like some sort of alley cat.

Yes, backing up to an Apple server is "cloud computing".

The problem is in the terminology.

Most people see "cloud computing" and associate it with something that you actively do, like use a cloud based application like Google Docs or SalesForce, and if they don't do that stuff, they're "safe."

The reality is that if you have a smartphone, Apple, Microsoft or Google almost certainly has copies of what's on it.
