I don't see how the computer manufacturers are going to make much money selling a computer that fixes itself.  As it is they design them to get progressively slower and slower and have more and more freezes.  It is only third-party software that interferes with their plans at all, and then only partly.

Therefore I don't think such a thing will come to market, at least not from a public company.

Third eye, the cloud is just a network of servers, or computers. While your device might not need Today's processing power, the machines that hold the information and carry out the tasks would still need a massive amount of processing power.

I don't rate the Cloud highly at all. All of your information stored on another computer often in another country with different privacy laws? No thank you. Read up on how many requests Google has had in the US due to the Patriot Act regarding their Cloud storage. You are effectively allowing your data to be accessed by another government.

Not only this, but say the provider is successfully attacked and all their stored information (including backups) is destroyed? Not only goodnight to personal data, but entire businesses could be ended in a heartbeat by such an act.

Cloud storage = overrated in my opinion.

The tablets and Pads are already pouring out towards the new horizon, our opinions matters little, that's where the next profit sprouting sector is and that's where we're all gonna have to do our daily computer related activities in the future.

Actually from what I understand, processing power is gradually being phased under,
Not for higher speed and float points but rather multi CPUs on the cores and grid, it's just a another way of using software codes.

Your concerns about Cloud is not new, but as I say, what we think matters little, they are still working on it, they are patching things up and making things happen along the way.

In a cloud computing system, there's a significant workload shift. Local computers no longer have to do all the heavy lifting when it comes to running applications. The network of computers that make up the cloud handles them instead. Hardware and software demands on the user's side decrease. The only thing the user's computer needs to be able to run is the cloud computing system's interface software, which can be as simple as a Web browser, and the cloud's network takes care of the rest.

haha :clap:

surely the sims can be saved in time? The cmos battery should feed them and all you need is a good mate who can restore stuff?

that'd be a great game to be honest, sims-zombie apocalypse! so if it DOES come about, I hope I can rely on you guys as witnesses when I sue EA games for theft of intellectual property...?
