Submission + - Apple co-founder condemns the cloud (fierceenterprisecommunications.com)

pbarker3 writes: "The outspoken Steve Wozniak is not doing any favors for supporters of the cloud, going so far as to publicly label it "horrendous."

The Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) co-founder spoke his concerns Sunday to monologist Mike Daisey after a performance of Daisey's one-man show, "The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs," according to a report by Agence France-Presse.

Wozniak expressed serious concerns about how content is stored in the cloud and predicted catastrophe in the coming years as cloud-based computing takes hold.

"I really worry about everything going to the cloud," AFP reported Wozniak as saying. "I think it's going to be horrendous. I think there are going to be a lot of horrible problems in the next five years."

"We all want to believe we're in control," the CNET story stated. "But we are but mere pawns on the imaginative chessboard of those in the nerd herd who take their pleasure in gaining access to your digital life.""
