I Take it Back . . . for now


Recently I posted an interview with the CEO of Bluetunes and made the statement that mobile was going to help push cloud services. TechCrunch recently hosted another round table with several major players where the cloud was the topic of conversation. Most agree that this trend is the very near future and the statement I made was incorrect; for now. The issue that burgeoning cloud services will have on mobile surround the issue of connectivity. I forget that calls get dropped all the time and even though things are getting better every day, the are still lacking. I can’t yet imagine a consistent cloud based service for my mobile.

Over time connectivity will become less of an issue (as hopefully battery life will) but for now that will be the limiting factor. Below is the TechCrunch round table: Who’s Cloud is it Anyway?
