Why the world isn’t ready for cloud

So while installing Windows 8 Developer Edition in a Virtual box, I noticed that my disk space has 6gb left. I thought about if I had a cloud server access if that would be better… I realized that the world isn’t ready for the cloud yet. Well, at least the US isn’t yet ready. I remember reading something about internet speeds of the world, and the USA isn’t even in the top 10. When the average speed of some people is still with low speed DSL and even a good portion still dialup, how do companies expect us to sync and pull info from the cloud? I think we need to focus on updating and expanding our infrastructure. Google had the right idea by starting in Kansas. That way the only ways to expand are outwards towards the shores. I’m hoping the larger ISP players will start spreading 100mbit line out to customers soon.

I know that this is a false hope, but still. What is the point of storing everything on a server if you have no access to it unless you drive 20 miles to a place with high speed internet so you can sync a few things, or view a few files. It totally defeats the purpose of owning a computer (netbook or iDevice in this case). Apple and Google need to start talking to ISPs and ISPs need to realize that not only are their silly IPv4 hardware old but they need stop charging rural areas twice what urban areas pay for 1/4th the speed. I know they are a business and not a charity, but their greed is making the USA look bad. The country that started this whiole technology revolution, is no longer in the lead.

And people wonder what happened to the American spirit.

    Not only that, but what made me rage one day was the media. I saw on the news, they were talking about this “new” thing called the cloud. Want to know what they used as an example of “the cloud”? Google Calender…. and IIRC some other image sharing website. I was like.. wtf? That’s not what the cloud is at all.. Most of the US is too knowledgeable to use things like the cloud in it’s true potential.

Most of the US is too illiterate to use things like the cloud in it’s true potential.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I entenucor a blog that’s both educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something regarding this.
