Steve Wozniak Sh*ts All Over “The Cloud”


Steve Wozniak was speaking in Washington, where he had this to say about the new revolution in computing, the cloud:

“I really worry about everything going to the cloud. 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.”

We’ve already seen plenty of celebrities get their phones hacked and their photos/information stolen. Is this a practice that can keep up with its growth? Eventually computers might not even need hard drive since everything will be stored remotely. Wozniak also brought up other fears the cloud can bring:

“The more we transfer everything onto the web, onto the cloud, the less we’re going to have control over it. With the cloud, you don’t own anything. You already signed it away.”

Do you trust your information on the cloud, in some random server room half way across the country?

I've see this one in the lovely 1995 film, The Net. Access to everyones information and then twisting that info to give all the politicians AIDS? It's happening. And now I'm worried about Dennis Miller.

It's called Clean Slate. It erases all information about you stored in every database(in the cloud). That's what Catwoman was looking for in The Dark Knight Rises.

Most celebrities are hacked by social engineering of their passwords and accounts, not direct attacks on the 'cloud.'

 

However, the fact that their nudie pics are stored on the cloud is why we get to see them after their accounts are compromised.

Backing up online is one thing, but never depend on infrastructure. Always store locally, and use an email client that downloads email to your PC.

He's right, us IT guys don't even want to hear the word cloud. It causes all kinds of headaches.

Well, they are starting to sell phones with no external storage options (like a micro sd).  Apple never even had the option.  They are forcing you to the cloud.   My library of music, videos ,etc is about 60GB and all stored with Google and streamed to my phone.  In fact, It streams to all of my devices.  That's the benefit.

He is right. Once it's out there it no longer belongs to you. So geotag and label those family photos before you give 'em away!

I don't think you need to censor "shit" on a website that shows full on titties just about every day.
