    The future is The Matrix

    Agree with you AC.

    Hard drives/CDs/DVDs and blu ray disks will be contraband.

    Orwell was only 30 years out with his 1984 vision, it will in fact be 2014.

      I too remember the good old days where you could carry around a stack of CD's or DVD's. Now I'm "restricted" to a phone with 32GB of storage, the ability to browse the Internet and make phones calls, play games and run applications while being oppressed....

      Who can rescue us from this nightmare and deliver a world where CD's and DVD's are useful once more?

      Mines the coat with "if they're not out to get me, why do they look at me like that?" on the back....

    Anytime I hear some description of a perfect technology, I can't help but think the words related to a certain animal and its waste product that is used as fertilizer.

    Let's not forget that Murphy's Law has been proven right more times than anyone can count.

    Follow too many outages, all servers are taken back in-house.

    Paris, because even she's given up on cloud.

    Blah, blah, blah, blah.

    The so-called "cloud" is snake-oil.

    "People are using more and more internet devices"

    I only have two hands.

    Thus I tend to use only one device at any give time.

    Speed does not have one dependency

    Of course if the cloud provider has architected smartly it will already have a solution that copes with low bandwidths and the many that do not have high high speed internet yet!
