Windows 7: Cloud computing

To me their are other reasons for expanding cloud computing.

Programs will be in a cloud so a monthly or yearly charge can be added for the use of every program. I'm not talking about downloading a program and installing it. Then registering it and paying for it. NO NO, the program stays in the cloud and you pay for the right to use it in the cloud.

They will be able to charge for the time you are using a program and how many people from a single payer is using the program at one time. Don't think they won't have a way of monitoring such things.
For a large company with many people accessing Microsoft Office (example) would cost a ton of money.

Now don't think the ISP are going to miss out on the money grabbing. Once your internet use goes sky high they will put extra charges in place that you will have no control over. It won't be liking shopping 10 stores for a fluffy pare of little rabbit house slippers and choosing the ones with the best price. You will have one provider.

Fiber optics which would be great. Fiber optics was invented in Alexander Gram Bell's laboratory a very long time ago. I believe in the later part of the 1800's. It would be a safe bet that the world uses less that 1/10 of 1 % of fiber optics in today's internet connections. The chances of fiber optics being ever 50 % of internet use will happen after the next generation of people are collecting social security. It would be billions if not trillions of dollars to do such a upgrade. Of course it would raise the cost of the use of the internet to cover the cost of investment plus a profit margin. Cloud computing has it's uses for some users and that is all well and good.

In most homes if you loose internet access for a short time you just go drink some beer and mow the lawn.
For a industry or business that loose internet connection it is a major problem if they use cloud based programs. Even if it is a short period of time.
I left Government out of this because it seem that when Congress or the President goes on vacation the country runs smoother. Therefor a shut down might be helpful.

I think we all could make a book each on security of cloud computing. Just check out the security problems with cell phones. Signal zips from your phone to a tower and then to a satellite, bingo the whole world of bad guys has access to it.
The companies that will offer the wonders of cloud computing are not doing it because you asked for it, want it or need it. They are not doing it because they want candle light dinners and warm showers with all of us.
They want our money without giving us a choice on the matter. Cloud computing will meet the needs of very few.
Storing or backing up of your computer of 25 gigs in a cloud. Big deal. You can put it on a thumb drive and put it in your pocket. They will have to kill you to get it. If that happens you won't need that 25 gigs of information any more anyway.

Frankly, the author of that article was an arrogant piece of work (I have more accurate terms but Mama told me not to use those words). He not only doesn't give the north end of a southbound, furry, little rodent about people who aren't as privileged has he and/or don't fit the profile he feels they should fit, he says so in a very hateful way (" sucks to be you..." Seriously?). I find it impossible to take jerks like him seriously.

Oh, wait! The sagacious donkey works for Micro$not. Why does that not surprise me?

The cloud has its uses now and will be even more useful in the future, but it is not going to take over, kill PCs, etc.
Well I'll just say it, that guy has his head up his ass. I suspect had he been around in the day he would have championed Beta Max,the Amiga, and Lisa.

I keep hearing about and reading about this cloud computing. Now I have not read up on all the facts but if I understand things correct basically I will have a stupid terminal and all my software etc will be out on the internet someplace. With all the mega hard drives, flash drives and laptops...
