Re: And it all works until...
Indeed, I want no part of anything which needs to connect to "the cloud" to function. Cloud = nebulous vapour, and frankly if it's something that I cant lay hands on to fix any issues then it is not fit for my purposes.
What do you do when the cloud service fails?
What about when the company running it decides to quit providing the service?
Can you ever be certain of the security measures that are in place and that security updates are applied in a quick and efficient manner?
Can you be certain that a future mandatory stealth update to the terms and conditions will not result in your details being sold willy nilly to all and sundry?
Sod that. If I run something then I run it and take responsibility for it.
