But when you shift from local storage to remote, you live by terms set by someone else - and it's best to read them. This is true for any cloud service, not just Google's.

Word on the Web this week is that two new clouds are on the horizon - Google Drive and Samsung's S-Cloud. The much-anticipated Google Drive is expected to launch next week, offering users 5 gigabytes of storage for free, according to reports. The Next Web said it managed to get a draft of Google's announcement. The site reports that Google Drive will work “in desktop folders” on Mac and Windows computers. Further bolstering this speculation, Talk Android also got a hold of a leaked screenshot describing the file-synchronizing service.

Personal computers at home and in the office will soon be displaced by the tablet as the primary computing device, according to a new report from Forrester Research.

Given that most users keep their tablets for three years, there will probably be 760 million tablets in use globally by 2016, said Frank Gillette, principal analyst on Forrester's business technology futures team.

San Francisco-based BitTorrent released the beta version Wednesday of a new application for its digital distribution software: syncing files across multiple devices.

Oh, and yes, the file transfers are encrypted to deter them from being monitored or intercepted.
