Wozniak Forecasts Horrendous Future for Cloud Computing

"Wozniak Forecasts Horrendous Future for Cloud Computing."

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak told an audience in Washington, D.C. yesterday that "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." Woz explained that "With the cloud, you don't own anything. You already signed it away," referring to the typical Terms of Use agreements that most people accept without much hesitation. "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."

If you are moving data to the cloud, protect it first. Scrambls gives you a simple mechanism to control who can access your content and on what terms. That means that service providers can't read your confidential information and sell it the highest bidder. If access to your account is hacked, you have a second layer of protection for your data.
