There’s this nagging feeling in the back of my head that says storing files in ‘the cloud‘ is just another step toward Big Brother knowing way more than I care to divulge about my life.
Here’s a perfect example. CloudClipboard. This is a simple Mac app that’s quite useful if you have multiple Macs. It synchronizes your Mac’s clipboard to iCloud so whatever you copy on one Mac is available on another Mac.
Great, right? I think so. However… there’s that irritating little concern that whatever I copy on my Mac is viewable by Big Brother.
Text, URLs, images. Whatever you copy is saved to iCloud and available for your other Mac, iPhone, or iPad.
I can’t really grumble much about the functionality. And there are plenty of times when I want to copy something and get it from my desktop iMac to the MacBook, or to my iPhone or iPad.
That’s not as easy to do as it sounds, but CloudClipboard does it seamlessly between devices and the copying occurs in the background, almost instantly.
What’s not to like?
Other than that whole Big Brother thing, of course.
