They've abandoned the USM implementation throughout their products -- lack of a cross-platform filesystem probably didn't help. Meanwhile their "SDrive" thing, sold as some kind of storage target, VHD-over-SSL-type-of-who-knows-what (is data encrypted on-the-fly? at time of writing? mixture of both?) is functionally Google-proof

And btw, with the BadUSB headlines somebody like, oh, say, Dropbox could probably make a few bucks off a robust, portable, encrypted container for removable media... It might not impress the Sand Hill Road set but clearly the wonderful cloud nirvana is taking its time to reach some users
