Tonido pro

If I understood correctly now the situation is that:
- you have to buy your own tonidoplug hardware
- install it, buy a hard disk, and worry yourself about configuration, data backup, network management, availability, and all tech issues that eventually come
- pay an annual fee of 30$ to have 50GB of sync capability

Now the convenience respect services like dropbox is not so clear for me. They have more expensive annual fees, but you don't have to buy the hardware, neither worry about reliability

Or am I missing something?

If you are synching private data that you are not comfortable putting on the cloud, Tonido Sync allows you to do that while with other services you don't have a choice.

Dont confuse 'secure' with 'private'. Tonido I dont think ever marketed itself as secure. PRIVATE refers to ownership as you own the cloud hardware and it is reserved for your OWN PRIVATE USE.

Tonido pay for bandwidth,and syncing 50gb does come at a cost to tonido..

Yeah, this is a great nothing-sying answer, which has nothing to do with ma post.
You should read my post completly and try to understand it. Mybe my english is not the best, but i think most of it is clear.

But just to make it clearer:
It's nothing against to pay for s.Th. But it's the way of how to pay it.
And in all my posts i say nothing about getting anything for free!
I know that the costs are for developing, but you're not asking for mone for developing, you're asking for money for Traffic!
You should read your own Blog-Posts.
In this case you trying getting money for something, you're not selling.
You offer more Traffic, WebShare pro and DNL-Service for a yearly fee. That would be OK, for the Free-Software users, but it's not for the Plug-Users, which have allready paid for 2 of this 3 things. And your saying it is for the Traffic on your Servers, but i don't use any of your Server (Except for DynDNS). So i wondering what i'm paing for.
If you've said this is for development it would be OK (for gettig new Features or Updates).
If you want just money for the "dead simple sync software" than dead simple ask for it, instead of cheating your customers by offering them things they've allready payed for or asking for Money for Service thei're not using.

And the other thing is, taht you promise everywhere it's private, but like i said before, it's NOT realy private. Only the Storage is private. But it's useless, if anyone can sniff your PWD, because there is no SSL. And the "we're working on SSL"-Thing is good, but for now it's dead simple not available and so it's for now not private.
What comes in the Future doesn't mater.

Again for the Stupid:
It's OK to Pay for something, but make clear for what it is.
If you want money for developing, ask for it!
