some stupid people really believe this

as the same people believed in a lot of "the next big thing"
hypes over the last 10 years like SOAP and nothing happened

this may be a usecase for the typical homeuser which does
mostly not more like webbrowsing and write some mails or
view vidoes, hear music

this WILL NEVER happen for real work and business cases
IF it would happen there then the cloud is a "private cloud"
and nothing would replace my workstation because i would be
the guy to implement this cloud which unlikely happens
from a tablet or mobile phone

NEVER EVER will somebody store critical data in the cloud
and if he does we will hear only a last *bang* from this
guy after some bad news what went wrong
