    The author is presenting a conflicting point of opinion to generate discourse and is usually very successful!

    Dana - The cloud has not always existed.

    Well, given that the cloud comes in private, public and hybrid forms that's an awful broad statement. I's say that the airline reservation "cloud" created as Sabre in the 1950's using IBM's PARS was one of the first private clouds using private telecommunications networks. Certainly, the advent of the internet using IP protocol, HTML, Java and Mosaic made the economics of building global public clouds accessible to all comers.

    bart_sst - Why are you so dismissive of non-business uses?

    I'm not dismissive but I try to be a voice for the fact that consumer information technology is not the end that justifies the means. I appreciate that consumers get really excited and hyped up about their brands and uses for consumer technology and it's made enterprises and investors huge sums. However, consumer technology results from copying the results of a lot of investments in CAPEX and R&D by a lot of serious enterprises. It's very unfortunate when mobs of consumers are so vocal and dismissive of real enterprise IT in their thirst to persuade everyone of their technical knowledge.

    Dana , I haven't seen Apple successfully sue Google over Android and it's a pretty successful open source "clone" of iOS. Sure there's all the human interface rubber band bounce IP royalties but that's really nonsense except it makes Microsoft a whole bunch of costless revenue from trolling.

  • Retirees Face An Asset Allocation Conundrum [View article]
    Paul Wagner - Let's start by reducing it by 5% a year and by the time it's down by 50% we can see how it has worked out!

    •Clouds abstract hardware into software for computing power, networking and storage.
    •Apple controls the device market through software standards.

    Clouds replace private data centers with computing utilities and do not abstract hardware in any way. The are 10 time more PC's today that are 10 times more powerful then 10 years ago. Ever 100 PC's requires any cloud server costing thousands of dollars. Apple does not control the device market, Microsoft controls classic PC's, Android controls the mobile device market and Intel controls cloud and data center servers running software from IBM, Microsoft, Oracle and SAP.

    bart_ss,

    So other then storage just what computing, tongue-in-check, does iCloud, iTools or .MAC really do per se? Apple iCloud is a consumer only toy cloud.

    Apple cloud services are really lame compared to Google and Microsoft. Apple real business is making overprice, simplified consumer devices.

    Dana - You can't copy an operating system? Yikes, what do you think all the derivatives of Unix SVR4 really are and why their certified under the Unix brand umbrella. Linux is the same thing even thought it was "copying" in a white room like the original IBM BIOS.

  • What America Can Learn From China's Infrastructure [View article]
    More like Democratic Socialist United States should study it's own history and realize we need to worry less about growth of the size of profits and more about limiting growth of population and maintaining standard of living. China and others are not going to allow US enterprises to rape and pillage their economies like what happened in the 20th century. We're already seeing Apple China, HP China, IBM China, Intel China and Microsoft China become realities. Their profits will never return to the US.

    Per capita based on US means little to the Chinese! It's a much bigger problem for the US in terms of energy consumption and standard of living. If 1.4 billion Chinese consume and earn more someone is going to pay the price in the EU and US!

    Let's see 105,000 gallons at $1,000 per gallon maximum California pollution fine equals $105,000,000 worth of oil.

    Bee Gee - I've read quite a bit about China including the Boxer uprisings. I think you have misinterpreted my comments. I'm in total agreement with China's governments actions and their full control. If majority rule really was best form of governing then the public would control the economic systems which they do not even in the US. The majority can be wrong and is quite often.
