That word cloud

McAfee: Not all partners are cut out to be SaaS providers • The Channel:

Sister:  “Why does the dlink wireless camera have cloud in it’s name?  Does the word cloud make it magically sell more?”

Me:  “Yes, it’s like sex.  Slap the name on there and it sells.”

Seriously there are a lot of things slapping the word cloud on them these days.

    File this article under “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”. McAfee falls more under the “meatball” category.

    So wait, when my head is in the cloud this is a good thing now…and I can promote it? :-)

    BTW, I had a couple of on-premises Exchange server customers (aka SBS) tell me they’re glad they’re not in cloud after the NSA drama. It all about giving the customer a choice.
