Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is worried about cloud storage
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has expressed his concerns about cloud storage, predicting “horrible problems” within the future years. His sentiments were expressed in a Q&A session following a controversial one-man performance in Washington by monologist Mike Daisey about Apple’s ( NASDAQ: AAPL ) labor conditions in China.
“i actually worry about everything going to the cloud,” said Wozniak when he was invited on stage. He said he believes that users were giving their rights away as a result of the terms of service that they agreed to when signing up with a cloud provider. “With the cloud, you do not own anything. You already signed it away,” he said , in accordance with AFP.
Though cloud users generally consider themselves up to the mark because of the data stored on their computers, Wozniak noted that “the more we transfer everything onto the internet, onto the cloud, the fewer we are going to have control over it.”
Wozniak’s comments come shortly after cloud-storage provider Dropbox apologized for the hacking of an employee’s account last week after an investigation. This has ended in the lack of a variety of email addresses and complaints of spam. Besides, former Gizmodo reporter Mat Honan last Friday saw a number of his data irretrievably lost when hackers remotely erased his iPhone, iPad and MacBook.
