On December 16, 2013, our friends over at Compare the Cloud wrote a blog called “The Day Computing Changed Forever – and We All Missed it.” The blog centered on what the future of the Cloud could hold for society. Ironically enough, the post was published on the same day that Google (pictured below) announced it’s new line of products – four legged military machines. SkyNet anyone?
