A recent survey has unearthed an interesting/borderline depressing fact—one in three people think cloud computing has to do with literal clouds. That's right: many of us think we need an umbrella to access SkyDrive.
You'd think this was the kind of statement your mother said at the dinner table and then you texted to all your friends for a laugh. But really, people are apparently scratching their heads on this one. Fifty-one percent of those polled think bad weather messes with the cloud, and another 54 percent think they don't even use the cloud ever. Not when they buy a Kindle book and definitely not when they're adding photos to DropBox. Not that these people are using DropBox. Then there's the 14 percent that have totally lied in job interviews about being very familiar with the cloud.
