Well, folks, this is the future of cloud computing that all the big companies want to shove down your throat. It means exactly what was described above, nothing that you say, do, or buy is yours. It is designed to allow the entire internet to be taken out of the box and exposed to whatever scrutiny anyone desires. It leads to lost data, because no system is perfect, lost time, because no connection is perfect, lost privacy, because no security can't be broken ( at least at home you can disconnect a drive, eh?), and misrepresentation and twisting of the truth, because there are already too many idiots out there that don't get all the facts on someone/something before the accusations begin. If you can't physically own something you pay for, then why pay for it? The concept of a game isn't what I bought, I bought the entire game, as a legal copy, to do as I wish for my entertainment. When I can't do this at will and without fear of problems from somewhere else, then I don't really control my software anymore, whether or not if its a game or my business. The real sticker for this is that if someone sued for stolen data, data loss, or interruption for a game, it would get laughed out of a court. Only when it happens to a business is it going to be a major case. Besides, data access for a business is already here, thats why you log into a site to get that data. I can't really see the advantage, at all, of the cloud.
