I have only recently discovered it, but now I use it almost daily.

It makes life so much easier for me. I can access it (and what ever I store there) pretty much anywhere, in various ways. Even simple notes, that I may have written down or just written in notepad and saved somewhere random are all collected together so it is almost impossible to lose anything.

I used it yesterday since that seemed to be the only way for me to save and reprint the picture.
Once I took another look at my account, I also found the other things I had save ready to again access.
Great addition and it will be used more often.

I visited the site and had a very brief look at the Learn More page and in all honesty it turned me off. It seemed totally lacking in detail on how to use it, just what are more like death by bullet point short paragraphs.

So it didn't excite me that much as something that I could use over my own basic method of working so I can find what I have saved/captured without need for an application to do it.

Nothing is better than using something that works.  :)

Yes, as you say if what you have works, a replacement has to be easier or better than what you have or it is just introducing duplication/redundancy.

Unfortunately for me with utilities like this my interest has to be sparked to make it worthy of at least a try, as they say you don't get a second chance to make a first impression.

I even went back for a second look and delved deeper and I just don't get it, if anything it bored the socks of me. I just couldn't get into it, like some books where you never got past the first few pages, this just wasn't a page turner for me.

I found another interesting thing. I am not sure if this is Google's response to Microsoft.
