I turned the damn thing off and don't miss it personally. Just maybe I
don't want a program to know where everything is, because it can tell.
My music and video files are my business, I put them where I put them
and I know where what is. Maybe I'm being paranoid <giggles inanely> but
I switch off all media features like album cover retrievals. It would be
a piece of cake for some nosy music-industry hack to find out what has
been retrieved with a court order. I look askance as "cloud computing"
too ...no telling who can snoop and what can happen with the
information, once it has left the security of my machine.

Nary a whimper, after I turned it off. Now to dig around to find all
those files to delete them.
