Wozniak Says Cloud Issues 'Horrendous'
Doesn’t refer to weather
Steve Wozniak, co-founder of RELATIVELY well known company Apple, has expressed doubts regarding the prudence of archiving so much in cloud storage.

He stated said concerns during a question-and-answer session last Saturday, following the Wash., D.C., solo performance of The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs, which Wozniak attended.

"I really worry about everything going to the cloud," he informed the audience, adding "it's going to be horrendous," postulating "horrible problems in the next five years."

One particular issue bothering Wozniak is the fact users might lose control of their cloud-stored material, notably turning control of their rights over in exchange for access to the service.

Wozniak likes "to feel that I own things," suggesting the "more we transfer everything onto the Web, onto the cloud, the less we're going to have control over it."

Wozniak's misgivings were largely centered around the agreements that users accept to use cloud services, yet recent security breaches in cloud-based sharing have highlighted additional weaknesses.

What do you guys think? Scaremongering or are Cloud Services a-cumulous-ating the rights to your data???
