Not A Cloud In The Technology Sky

The best cloud is still your own.

Sunday I tried playing music through my Apple TV locally connected to my MacBook Pro that acts as the iTunes server with my music on it. It could not connect to the iTunes store, which it apparently had to. Even when all my music is purchased and stored locally, not part of a subscription. Alas, no music today.

Today the weather got nippy, and I logged into my mobile nest (thermostat) application on the iPhone to adjust the temperature. To no avail. The nest server cannot be found.

So, I am hoping you could think twice before you argue with me on the notion that the best cloud is still your own. Think three times before you trust your services to the cloud.

Today apparently, the “gods” of technology decided there be no cloud in the sky.

Let’s lead the world by example with new rigors of excellence we first and successfully apply to ourselves.
