Not a lover of "The Cloud"... The concept leaves me cold when I think back on all those wonderful storage schemes (Image Station, for one) which just disappeared and took everything with them. I realize that I am being a "belt and suspenders" bloke, but I REALLY want a data storage scheme that I can control myself. I was delighted when the ZIP drive came out, even more delighted with CD-RW (Wow that's a LOT of storage!), and then DVD-RW was even more awesome. I haven't really progressed beyond that, and I'd like to know just what may be around the corner for hard storage. Back about 4 years ago there was rumour of a 300GB disc from Sony but one supposes that there were production glitches with that as I only see BluRay for 25GB available. Why no cloud? I make weekly backups to a separate HDD (external) but want to have something "solid" like a BluRay or DVD to store away for a year as archival files. Anyone have info that I can operate with?
