Steve Wozniak Is Really Worried About Everything Going to the Cloud

As the tech heavyweights work to convince their customers that the future is in the cloud, one consumer technology pioneer is letting it be known that he’s not completely on board.

Speaking after Mike Daisey’s one-man show, “The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs,” Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak told the audience that he was really worried “about everything going to the cloud,” and that he thinks “there are going to be a lot of horrible problems in the next five years.”

Why? Well, simply, he feels “with the cloud, you don’t own anything,” said Wozniak. “You already signed it away through the legalistic terms of service with a cloud provider that computer users must agree to.”

According to the AFP, he continued:

“I want to feel that I own things,” Wozniak said. “A lot of people feel, ‘Oh, everything is really on my computer,’ but I say the more we transfer everything onto the web, onto the cloud, the less we’re going to have control over it.”

Apple, Amazon, Google, and Microsoft surely don’t think moving to the cloud is a bad idea. All four companies are heavily investing in cloud-based services to store music, documents, and other media
