Do you trust "the cloud"? So many people use this as a common term but do they really know what it means? Has this just become a common verb that is used to ambigously, to were people aren't really safely storing their data? There has been multiple instances (seems to be only with celebs) were data and pictures have been leaked. Personally, I prefer to use google drive over the apple icloud. The google interface provides more options regarding spreadsheets, presentations or documents. It is also easily accessed throughout various computers and phones. It is also possible to store a lot of data before they charge you for space. The apple icloud is not very user friendly, and also is obviously strictly used for apple users. They don't give you very much "free" space before they start charging you. They even charge you to back up your phone. A lot of andrioid users, use that argument of being able to control how much space they have.
Cloud storage is a form of storage were data is stored in logical pools. Imagine swimming in an actual pool full of random data. I don't think I would want to see what everyone wants to save. Several servers are usually leased or bought by people and companies to be used and monitored. A hosting company secures the data and watches it like a hawk at their data center. Joseph Carl Robnett Licklider is credited to be the inventor of cloud storage. In the 1960's he worked on a project called ARPANET, to try and connect people and data from anywhere whenver they wanted.
If we look at history and how quickly technology has been moving. Is it possible once we finally get a hold of managing our own data will it move so quickly that we just have a little chip in our arm that we won't even have to think about managing our own data. I think people get very scared of technology and would think it isn't for convince it is just for the goverment to try and control us. I think it would be so incredibly convient! You could just scan your wrist to anything, unlock your car, house, pay for anything. I guess that also seems like the plot in any current super hero movie where the goverment is controlling everyoen with those micro chips and then someone evil villian hacks them and everyone becomes his robots to take over the world.Hmm...maybe not such a good idea.
