Comment And what, exactly, connects *TO* the cloud? (Score 3, Funny) 157

And how do you connect to it? I hate this idiotic world view that we all magically plug into the cloud and the data mystically appears in front of our eyeballs.

Last time I checked, the cloud holds the data... it doesn't get us to the cloud, nor does it process the data (well, in some cases, maybe).

They're all unknowingly implying that we're going to plug into some matrix style knowledge bank.

And if that really is the case, I guess my IT job will shift to cleaning those metal brain plugs.

Comment Going old school... (Score 1) 459

Anyone remember the old-school trashing technique of using the chemicals from strike anywhere matches on a 5.25 floppy disk. Insert disk, r/w head hits surface, ignition.

So I offer, pack the shell with ohio blue tip matches. A bigger brain than mine (not so much) will need to figure out how to light them. :-)
