Default Best cloud storage for viewing files online?

I'm looking for a cloud storage app for my phone, I need to be able to get access to pics and other media files?

For non-personal data (video,photo) -> Dropbox/Boxee/Skydrive depending on your need.

For personal data (personal documents) -> Wuala (Secured, none except you can access your files, not even Wuala. Files get encrypted before sending to server).

Let's face it. Depending what you are tyring to secure, nothing is unbreakable. Whoever develops the encryption, generally has a back door. Be sure NSA, has a way.So nothing is safe. You have to develop other ways to be secure.

This is from Wuala's "About us"
"Nobody - not even we as storage provider - can access your data without your authorization. "

Your authorization is the key word here.

Then read in fine detail in the EULA what you Agreed To, when you accepted the use of their software.

+1 for Wuala, even hosted my ROM there, but I'll also be using Dropbox a bit more now thanks to HTC

Bottom line, they're both very good in my experience.

In my opinion Dropbox gives a really good service with an awesome integration on our Android phones. If you've got a data plan there are more possibilities, for example you can share a photo/video/data with your friends in a public folder so your friends can check out this folder whenever they want.
Definitely, Dropbox is gorgeous
Sorry about my English. If I have made any mistakes in my message, please correct me. I want to improve.

Dropbox for me is better than sugarsync or box.net, the weak point only give 2.5 GB

I'm not saying it unbreakable, just less breakable then Dropbox. Which is important if there are some personal documents in it.
