For the most part, so do I. What I was alluding to, of course, by singling our the mention of your 1Password data file was data that you presumably do not post on the internet, e.g., your tax returns, financial records, personal photos, etc where confidentiality matters.  As always when it comes to such things, YMMV, but I myself make it a practice of not storing anything in "the cloud" unless (a) I don't care if the world sees it or (b) it is encrypted and the power to decrypt lies with me alone. Dropbox is crazy good vis-á-vis (a); (b), not so much.

Its more secure architecture and its long-term, incremental versioning make it a bit slower to update than Dropbox, which is amazingly fast, but changes still typically propagate within 30 seconds or so. (It's also less expensive per GB and .edu users get a 50% discount, FWIW.)
