I haven't really followed cloudee very much at all since it has very little appeal to me. Cloud storage is and has already been with us for a while and is pretty easy to setup for general use. It's fine for docs, pics and music but not really ideal for video IMHO. I see several obstacles to cloud use of video. First most people don't have the bandwidth to stream good DVD or BR quality films and they need to be compressed a lot like the films on Hulu, Netflix, etc. To me these aren't good enough. We're getting there and it's good enough for many people but not for me personally.
The second issue is a matter of bandwidth. Most ISPs have a limit you can use per month. For example Comcast allows you to use 50GB per month. That's fine for pics and music but can get used up quickly for movie theater quality video. If you access these though your cell phone you might have 2-5GB or so per month.
I personally store my TV shows and movies locally and don't rely on online streaming. What I really want is the best local streaming device possible. That's what I purchased the BB for. I don't care about social networking on my TV set nor do I care much about the other online streaming on the box (although I know a lot of others like it).
I'm simple. I just want a box that's outstanding with local content and doesn't need to be bounced a couple of times a day cause it slows down. I want a box that has good adult filtering and can keep my kids out of stuff they shouldn't have access to. I want a box that gets better with each release and not fix one thing but break two or three other things.
