Sure Andrei,

Computers have been "online" since before 1980. General subscribers have been playing games through billed services and bulletin board posters have been placing peers on the alert through the years up until the turn of the century when the latest morph/changling of the proud parent "the internet", the cloud, was born. Since then the whole business of "connectivity" has blossumed into a billion dollar industry and everybody welcomed another venue to exploit this electronics gene-pool. But computers, aside from what one reads now, are calculating devices at a level just above electronics. And hopefully you'd agree with me being a coder and a CPian, that just to the left of any ethernet card or serial port device, growth of this technology is around speed and volume.

CPU and memory. Faster and more of something. And possibly smaller footprint.

Now look at the cloud. what is it? A storage device. It's an external "hard drive" to the computer. Instead of adding a drive to my stack I add a drive to an external location? Seems more like an unknown Ex on a map where I have little influence over maintenance and security. Average dunderheaded cloud user (the one who signs up to store stuff, his apps, his information, his things he's going to make available to others) there could just as easily plop another hard drive into his ccabinet and have locally, his way, when he wants it, out from under any eyes but his own, for a decade until it's full, all his stuff just as easily.

It's a conservative spin on an alarmingly liberal communicative yackety-yack non-sense-for-the-sake-connected-non-sense that I will stand behind. Frankly, noone's going to chuck their hulking 100lb stack of hardrives and their gigantic 6.0GHz CPU and the 256GB of RAM they call "MyComputer" just because "cloud" storage is free now.

Mr. Deasey, what say we now ... ?
