The cloud is great, when you are somewhere with internet. Go over seas, or even a plane trip is going to really suck if you are reliant on the cloud to store all your music. The things I want, I keep on the device, everything else is there in the cloud that I need. I have always gone with the base iPhones, this time around I will move to a 32 gig I think, just to keep things more open with the amount of apps and size of them growing, plus music and movies, pictures and videos.
“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.” Bishop Desmond Tutu
