Sunday I tried playing music through my Apple TV locally connected to my MacBook Pro that acts as the iTunes server with my music on it. It could not connect to the iTunes store, which it apparently had to. Alas, no music today.
Today the weather got nippy, and I logged into my mobile nest (thermostat) application on the iPhone to adjust the temperature. To no avail. The nest server cannot be found.
So, think twice before you argue with me on the notion that the best cloud is still your own. Think three times before you trust your services to the cloud.
Today apparently, the “gods” decided there be no cloud in the sky.
