CloudFog / Someone-Else's-Computer -vs.- Industry PR

~ S3 down, ouch! But it won't impact cloud business much. Why? Corporations are addicted to cost cutting. Its the 'New Innovation, Stupid'!

~ But industry still doesn't want anyone thinking about 'Someone Else's Computer'. Instead we should use buzzwords like hyperscale:

http://www.techrepublic.com/article/is-the-cloud-really-just-someone-elses-computer/

~ Its a hyperscale failure today. And next time there's an even bigger cloud config / data center / net outage, its still not 'someone else's computer'...
