If you didn't have much to do this afternoon and tuned into the much-pumped Oracle cloud announcement, you probably were left scratching your head about an hour and a half later if you stuck around (as El Reg is paid to do), wondering what, exactly, Oracle announced and why it took so long to do it.

When nobody listened, and cloud became the driving force, Oracle apparently came out with.....a gimmick and called it "Cloud".
World's most expensive troll. One Rich Asshole Called Larry Ellison, indeed.
