The Cloud is Evil? Why yes. Yes it is!

I have never agreed with the concept of using the 'Cloud' for my
computing needs, especially the model that we are expected to consume.

Looks like I am in good company too! According to Apple co-founder Steve
Wozniak, expect massive problems over the next 5 years.

"I really worry about everything going to the cloud," he said. "I think
it's going to be horrendous. I think there are going to be a lot of
horrible problems in the next five years."

He added: "With the cloud, you don't own anything. You already signed it
away" through the legalistic terms of service with a cloud provider that
computer users must agree to.

Just another way to get screwed over. You don't own it once you 'Cloud'
it. How cool is that? Only an idiot would agree to something so Orwellian!

Idiots by the millions too, because most of the consumers don`t read the
TOS when they start using a service such as this.

You geniuses on here could get rich coming up with an alternative where
the users do not forgo title to their content once it becomes part of
the fluffy white mass!

Umm on second though, forget trying to start a service like this. Two
words for ya....
