    It couldn’t explained way more complex. Here is what’s cloud computing. User puts info/data/etc in big companies server and the company processes the data for the user, and user gets billed (or not) by the company. OFC the company own/check/change the data without informing the user. Sounds familiar? Well it is because cloud computing is just a ribbon on the same things that we already use to make it look something new and else. easiest example; webmails.

    The cloud is a con, the corporations and governments want to separate us from our programs and files, so all they have to do is cut off our internet access and we’re totally fucked, so we can’t even write anything or make any videos. It’s optional right now, but once they have enough mugs signed up they’ll make it compulsory. It’s all about controlling the means of production by removing it from our hands. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

    Nothing special about a “Cloud” server, its just a pitch for selling webhosting. Cloud server is typically a server that has a webserver dishing out websites in memory

  16. Jason Sweet says:

    yeah! It probably becomes the property of the server company and they dish out royalties to the authors. OR they sell your apps and you don’t get paid, while you have to pay them for the apps usage.

    Internet Was around back in World War 2, Al Gore just gave it to the public.

  18. Jason Sweet says:

    So if we have something like a VB.Net application that runs in windows, we tailor it with GUID’s or something and the Cloud server allows that program to run or what?
