Don't Miss: This How to find Fingerlings in Stock

Things will get worse before they get better.

Cloud storage seems like the perfect answer to so many of our storage problems. Upload your photos straight to the cloud, and access them on any PC! Store your music in the cloud and rock out anywhere! Take your business to the cloud and become more nimble than ever! Could there be a downside?

Money.

See, storing data online isn't free. Neither is maintaining the equipment that keeps your family photos and dirty pictures accessible from Kabul to Kansas. One of the last big hold-outs to offer unlimited cloud data storage, Mozy, recently nixed their unlimited data plan. They are the wave of the future.

The number of unlimited cloud storage options for mass consumers grows shorter every year. And it has to. We're using too much data for the old ways to be sustainable. Now that anyone with $200 can start throwing their own 1080p footage onto the Internet, a bandwidth crunch is nearer than ever.

As a consumer, your options are limited. Physical data storage is inexpensive and plentiful, but not nearly as convenient as constant cloud access. This may just be one of those things we have to wait out until the technology leaps forward. My advice? Get yourself grandfathered into a good unlimited plan now.
