I find that the cloud is only a thread when lock-ins are being created. Microsoft did this for example by not being able to export your mail out of hotmail/live, or not being able to open your documents in something else than MS Office.

I'm happy as long as I can decide what I want to do with my data, the api is open and I can go to another company for the same service if I want to.

I think an universal api is bad because I think it holds back innovation but you should indeed be able to step to another provider without very much hassle.
