Why the Cloud Sucks

|Why I Hate Cloud Based Technologies|

How don’t they suck?

Give me one way that cloud based applications and tools are better than their downloadable and installed counterparts (i.e. Photoshop or Office – now vs then)?

They’re not.

They’re just tools with strings attached.

It’s like going to the store and buying a hammer; but you’re only allowed to use it for a year. After that you have to renew your right to use the hammer. That’s the difference between cloud based and native applications.

One might argue that some cloud based applications allow you to buy a license for life. That’s great. Now I just have to ensure that I always have an internet connection when I want to use my hammer.
