If we mine a shitload of material out of the moon, won't that affect it's gravitational effect on the planet?
If we shoot a thousand rockets off of the Earth, won't that affect the gravitational effect on the moon ?
Nail, head hit. To me, the cloud is another piece of media, like a tape, hard disk, SSD, USB flash drive, or punchcard. Said media has its uses, but it also has shortcomings.
How could you store Media on the cloud anyway. Wouldn't it be expensive to mail all the CDs, USB drives, Tapes and hard drives to the cloud where ever they are. It would be much more sensible to store Data on the cloud.
The desktop has grown up and become as good as it can be. CPU speed can't be increased. Screen resolution is maxed out. Audio is CD quality. Everything has gone past being good enough and they last a long time so there is no longer an Upgrade Path to take. Surely sales will go down as a result, but the desktop will never die.
Humans are evil! We must kill ourselves now!
We are killing ourselfs, and we are taking everything else with us . . .
