    Been playing with the Office365 beta.

    Took three lines of PowerShell to connect from my desktop to the remote Exchange server and import all the nice cmdlets into the local PS session.

    Full cmd line control of my cloudy email.

    As someone who's spent the last 15 years supporting MS environments, that was a bit cool.

    Integration is certainly their selling point right now.

    Alright. Once again and read my lips. Things you do (whatever, reading, writing, looking at, clicking on, etc.) will get notice. May it be MS, Apple, The Register, no matter what. it'll bite you in the ass sooner or later. Fancy wording like CLOUD COMPUTING, FILE SHARING, ANONYMOUS, SECURE, SCRAMBLED, PASSWORD, PROTECTED, ETC. ETC., is just wording, no promises, whatsoever. Now , Register, get back to me if not true.
