RJ's SQL Server and MySQL Notes

Notes on SQL Server and MySQL

Woz weighs in on the Cloud.

Posted by rjssqlservernotes on August 7, 2012

Apparently my evangelism against the Cloud is taking root as evidenced by Steve Wozniak’s recent comments.

Woz says:

“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.

“I want to feel that I own things,” Wozniak said. “A lot of people feel, ‘Oh, everything is really on my computer,’ but I say the more we transfer everything onto the web, onto the cloud, the less we’re going to have control over it.”
