Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has said he expects horrible problems to crop up in the next five years as cloud-based computing takes hold.
"I really worry about everything going to the cloud. 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," Wozniak said.
Wozniak pointed out that 'as we would save more and more information onto the web, we are going to have less control over it'.
"With the cloud, you don't own anything. You already signed it away through the legalistic terms of service with a cloud provider that computer users must agree to," News.com.au quoted Wozniak, as saying.
"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," he added.
