I absolutely despise hearing people talk about "The Cloud" like it's some mystical place up in the air where your data is stored. My favorite response is "It's some server farm in a cornfield in Kansas". Only partially true. It's probably not in a cornfield in Kansas.

Miss Kitty actually explained it pretty well and managed to weave some humor into a very dry subject. Here are a couple of images of "The Cloud".

This is what "The Cloud" really is. Racks and racks of servers (small powerful computers very similar in function to the one on your desk).

Found this: "How many servers does it take to power Amazon's huge cloud computing operation? Amazon doesn't say, but a researcher estimates that Amazon Web Services is using at least 454,400 servers in seven data center hubs around the globe."

I just spent two weeks inside the CLOUD in the Washington D.C. area.

I do not want any of my 'stuff' backed up in a cloud, yet somehow data from my computer goes there. All of these servers consume electrical power which leaves a huge carbon footprint that is destroying the atmosphere. It is all so unnecessary. Human arrogance and stupidity to the nth degree.

Can we safely delete the cloud from our computers?

It is automatically loaded with every upgrade.

::drool:: IMHO Apple makes it particularly difficult to avoid using their “iCloud”. If you want to transfer content from an old iPhone to a new one I’m told the only way to do it is upload to the cloud the content to be transferred, then download it from the cloud to the new device. In fact my wife recently got a new phone to replace her old iPhone 6 (which Apple has ceased to support, making an upgrade almost mandatory). AT&T informed her they no longer transfer content for customers and the only way to do so is via the Apple cloud.

To my dismay she agreed to this and allowed her content to be uploaded and then downloaded to her new phone. ::dang:: “I wanted my pictures of my grandchildren transferred.”

I since learned pictures can be transferred without iCloud via an Apple Mac, which I do not have. There must be a better way to do that.

These things, and the ludicrous amount of hype,
is reason enough to detest Apple products.

Just one more reason I don't use Apple products. That entire lash-up is proprietary to the max. Transfering files is so simple on a PC or Android device. ::huff::

Exactly. I have a BlackBerry KeyOne phone, with an Android operating system. I back it up on my PC. Transferring pictures and other content is simple and easy using free BlackBerry software that you load onto your PC (or Mac). The phone has a great camera and a real honest to goodness keyboard! ::tu::

That was hilarious, but also a little bit scary, thanks for posting it, Jerry. ::tu::
We as consumers are being constantly pushed to do everything online: banking, shopping, filing income tax returns etc. And yet nobody can absolutely guarantee the security of any of it. I balk at it all, as much as I can. Although, we all use it, all of our posts on this forum are stored on a server somewhere.

How long will digital pictures last ? Surely at some point the digital information bits that create the picture will become corrupted and picture will no longer appear ?
