Why does free Wifi suck?

Why does free wifi usually suck? The free wifi that I connect to usually sucks. It is slow, takes forever to connect and is not secure at all.

Online Central Storage is a bad idea

I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts, MacBreak Weekly Episode 518. Host Leo Laporte was suggesting a new direction for Apple. They would have a central online location for all of a user’s files. The way I understood it that would be everything, pictures, documents, spreadsheets, music, EVERYTHING!It’s a good idea in theory but in terms of the real world I thought it was a horrible idea.
