Cloud computing in it’s real form is using an off site storage and operating system. Cloud computing is booting up your computer and the cmos/bios calls out to an off site location and is given the proper command to tell your computer to boot up. This giving you, the owner of your computer, no ability to control your content because your computer does not have it’s own storage. Because it simply does not need it. Yes your computer will last longer. but your computer will practically be like a cable box. you will not be 100% in control of your surfing and or your content.
Currently the definition of cloud computing is a lesser than what it really is.
From wikipedia October 2 2010
Cloud computing is Web-based processing, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices on demand, like the smart phones.
Being able to network your material across locations and platforms, fine. That’s excellent. But the moment it gets changed to you having to install this and that to operate better with the cloud and the instance you lose features and functions and personal control of processes, is the clue that this is going to be something we do not want. A gradual acclamation into forfeiting freedom, creation, knowledge, learning and teaching.
The reason Why I say it’s Microsoft and the Cloud is because they seem to be pushing the cloud like crazy on their recent commercials. But cloud computing has been around since before windows Vista. I am assuming they expected windows Vista to not be a flop. That way the buzz about Cloud computing would be just prime for Microsoft to jump on the term. but now they are almost two years into windows 7, Microsoft is now boasting “the cloud”.
it seems they have (for now) Separated Cloud Computing and “Online Operating System“. Here is one that lets you test it. (there is one that forces you to install Microsoft Silver light, but lol no way dude)Here is a fake one that limits what you can do, done in flash.
Hey the whole online operating system is perfect for grand parents, aunts and the idiot who thinks he is to tough to learn. an online operating system is not for the kid growing up who needs to learn how to build a computer and fix an operating system and test theories and some day be a rocket scientist. An online operating system is for people who will learn nothing hands on from their computer, but get a chance to use wikipedia and google a bunch.
With comcast setting a cap and saying that if you use more than 250 gigs of bandwidth (internet) a month you have will have to pay for each meg that you go over. 250 sounds unreachable right? Imagine all the times you drag something around your computer from one drive to another. Imagine if your computer was scattered all over the internet. Yeah 250 gigs will burst in a week. and in that case, a web based operating system surely is not for a company that has lots of backed up documents.
We need to vote that we can never be forced into online operating systems and that all companies who make stuff for web bases operating systems, also make the software compatible with local storage computers, and no one can decorate the web based operating systems to be better.
what gets me is palm hp and Linux and Microsoft and apple are all pushing this like it’s the biggest and most wanted thing, but when you ask people how they feel about it, the respond with ” I have no idea what you are talking about” . We don’t want it,
Do not decorate it to be something it is not and do not give it to us in small tiny doses and then strip us of the last final thread. We know it will happen.
I’m sure to some it may look as if i am screaming the sky is falling. Sad thing is, when it does fall, My site will be gone and blocked and all of my traffic will be gone. Some stury of incompatible with the new internet or some lame crap.
DON’T TOUCH MY COMPUTER AND DON’T TOUCH MY INTERNET
I am not against or for net neutrality. Quit saying “either or” because what it is now, is not “either or”. Let’s keep the internet as it is and you need to quit capitalizing on it.
There needs to be a third picket sign at the rally that says ” LEAVE MY INTERNET ALONE! ”
Right now as it is, the biggest mover what has helped computers evolve the most is being shut down. PC Gaming. go to three game stops and tell me how many at all three have pc games anymore.
