Day 228 – Disappointment

Why is there no online store that has *all* the music, both for streaming for a monthly fee, and available for purchase/download by the track? I want to stream to discover, and download to own. Why does this not exist? Why is this so hard?

Why do I have to store my task lists in the cloud? Why can’t I keep the data somewhere inside my own network. Inside my home. Where it cannot accidentally leak in bulk. Why the same for the best calendars? The best email?

Don’t get me wrong, I love that my laptop doesn’t contain any crucial data; I can reformat, reinstall and then all my data comes back from the cloud. Maybe what I want is an option that just uses the web for storing blobs of data without understanding, and apps on my machine that interpret and manipulate.

Cloud is great.
Cloud is terrible.

I don’t know what I want.

I’m having a bit of a sulky day I think.
