With the cloud, you don’t own anything

“I really worry about everything going to the cloud,” he said. “I think it’s going to be horrendous. I think there are going to be a lot of horrible problems in the next five years.” Some of Wozniak’s main concerns appeared to mirror those of Steve Jobs when dealing with the music industry and the concept of media ownership: “With the cloud, you don’t own anything. You already signed it away [through legalistic terms of service]. I want to feel that I own things. 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.”
