    I see this everywhere. Even in retail electronics stores - it seems that half of the products being sold are "cloud" this or that. It's very frustrating for me as a technical guy working in the field. I can't imagine how confusing it must be to many others. Definitive case of buyer beware. If you stick with focusing on what you need, you'll come across the right "cloud" solutions. Here are a few more of my thoughts in something I wrote nearly two years ago...nothing has changed. http://www.securityinfowatch.com/article/10531733/get-with-it-dark-cloud-looming

    Cloudwashing is the cool thing to do these days. Even Adobe's in on the game. https://community.csc.com/community/cio-engage/blog/2013/05/13/theres-next-to-no-cloud-in-the-adobe-creative-cloud http://www.fiercecontentmanagement.com/story/adobe-creative-cloud-could-be-misnamed/2013-05-07
