Hey guys, this week we want to know what do you use the cloud for? Is it file storage, music (amazon among others), applications (Google Docs), or even as simple as a website? Let us know what you use it for!

nothing. Have no interest Broadcasting my Things over the internet.

"It works Because I threatened it. :lol:" - " did you show it the sledgehammer" - "No, A flight of stairs"
"I don't want to be much of a forum Nazi but this situation calls for a hail Bosco and blitzkrieg someone".

If that does not work I hop in a Madcat and Blast it to microscopic Particles.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

Dropbox for schoolwork, documents, and syncing photos. And if you have an Android phone, you automatically use the cloud for storing apps. Google music for my online music storage.

I use the cloud for shade, I love when it blocks the sun on a hot summer day. Posted Image

Okay seriously, I used cloud based email, for my gaming, video streaming, listing to music and backups.

Mostly back up files. I've got all of my music on a Gmail account plus Google music, photos on Skydrive, Picasa, Flickr. I've got a ton of photos/videos on FB and YouTube if that counts.

I'm not really feeling the cloud for things like apps.
