How Stupid Do They Think People Are?
Even people who know next to nothing about computers have friends and family who advise them on what is the best course of action.
This is not the 1990s anymore when most people just believe all of the talking points of whatever slippery salesmen like Steve Ballmer tell them.
I think that Microsoft really stepped in it this time, that's my prediction.
They expect people and businesses world wide to hand over all of their confidential data so that spy and government agencies can sift through everything they have.
Yeah, it's the law so they have to comply.
Of course if you are not doing anything wrong you have nothing to worry about, right? That is what they tell you,isn't it?
In addition to that who is going to develop anything for the "Cloud" when people will probably have to purchase it from a Microsoft on line store.
How are they going to get paid? Is Microsoft going to do it?
Here is an idea, go to any on line game and write an app for it and see if you can get it installed and get someone to pay you for it.
That is what the "Cloud" is like.
So where is the incentive to develop anything?
Well some files are kept on the local machine right? But they have to pass scrutiny so that they are signed off on as "safe" or "trusted".
You will probably have to buy everything from a Microsoft on line store.
That applies to drivers for hardware too.
I am just waiting to see how many developers sign up for that.
Some will of course but I am betting that most won't.
That is the wall that Microsoft is up against now.
Developers are likely to just go and develop for something else.
