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.
