No, you will just have to pay real world money to have a caddy and a golf cart, so you don't have to virtually walk the entire distance between every hole while pressing a button that keeps you from dropping your golf bag on the ground, and you only have to pay for a new golf ball if you don't want to do the golf-ball pixel hunt mini game! And in madden, you just have to play real world money to recruit the top players. As long as you are ok with a quarterback that you drag out of a virtual alley a few blocks from the stadium with a severe drinking problem (all realistically simulated in game), you don't have to pay a cent!
We're gonna need another Timmy!

Actually you can encrypt the data itself, but not the database. Basicly the client side would have to send, I want the address, email and phone number for person whos hash value = (hash key), the cloud looks up the hash, sends back the information in encrypted form associated with that hash, decrypts it, then uses it for whatever is needed. Upon changing it, the client encrypts it before updating the cloud. The server would not know the actual data unless they got the encryption key. the downside to this would be they only have one value they can use to lookup the data, as they wouldnt be able to do a lookup based on the encrypted information.
This is just another step towards the realization of the movie "Idiocracy".
I can picture it now!
Unintelligent Doctor: Watson, the patient is screaming "AAAA It hurts so bad" and recently fell off a bike before coming here. What is wrong with him?
WATSON: WHAT IS LEG?
Unintelligent Doctor: *pokes leg*

Intelligent mice are more likely to realize in cases where the food supply is low that they shouldn't reproduce, so there is more food for themselves. The stupid mice reproduce anyway, passing on the genetic trait keeping the intelligence from emerging.
