What do you think about Woz's concerns over cloud computing?
tganley 1 year ago
I'm the first to concede that Steve Wozniak is smarter and more knowledgeable about pretty much anything that has "compute" in its name. Woz apparently has some serious doubts about cloud computing, to the point that he thinks that there are going to "be a lot of horrible problems in the next five years." It seems his main concern is lack of control and ownership. It seems to me that that can be addressed through either contract terms or, horror, even legislation. Then again, I'm not one of the founders of Apple, so may Woz knows something more than I do about this. What do you think, is Wozniak right about the cloud? Are we going to face "horrible problems?"
