Woz predicts cloud doom

Written by Nick Farrell



Horrible problems in the next five years


While Apple cleans up after a huge security nightmare on its iCloud, founder Steve Wozniak has warned that the next five years will be Cloud hell.

Wozniak appeared at the Washington performance of "The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs," monologist Mike Daisey's controversial two-hour expose of Apple's labour conditions in China. According to AFP Woz  told the crowd he was really worried about the Cloud and the fact that companies are shoving all they can on it.

Woz thought that it was going to be horrendous and a lot of horrible problems in the next five years. He said that with the cloud, the user did not own anything, having signed it away with the terms of service with a cloud provider. Woz wants to feel he owns things and the more humanity transfers everything onto the web, onto the cloud, the less we're going to have control over it.

Earlier this week Mat Honan, who is a tech hack for Gizmodo, found all this out the hard way when hackers broke into Apple's cloud and deleted everything they could find connected to him. Apparently they fooled Apple's customer support into handing over his passwords.
