In an interview with Richard Nieva of Cnet, Steve Wozniak — co-founder of Apple — made it clear that he doesn’t consider the “cloud” to be safe from government spying. Additionally, the increased reliance upon these systems by companies of all types troubles him:

“I think most companies, just like Apple, start out young and idealistic,” Wozniak said at the Apps World North America convention here. “But now all these companies are going to the cloud. And with the cloud you don’t have any control.”

Wozniak also stated that there aren’t any strong regulations in place to protect citizens from having their data stolen by the government. Such regulations exist with the U.S.P.S., though they have yet to make their way to the digital side.
