Hi Leo,

I know this isn't the first time you've posted a comment like this. I don't recall anyone on our staff committing to such a 'new year's resolution.' By all means if you remember seeing one our our team saying so, please point us in that direction.

Regards
Tom LaSusa

But progress could still stall: 59 percent of nonusers ­distrust the security of Google's cloud. Its data privacy is an open question, and 37 percent worry about integration.
