It's Always Cloudy on the Internet


Although web giant Amazon.com came under fire due to an infowars.com report showing that there is no privacy at all on Amazons own Cloud service.

“5.2 Our Right to Access Your Files. You give us the right to access, retain, use and disclose your account information and Your Files: to provide you with technical support and address technical issues; to investigate compliance with the terms of this Agreement, enforce the terms of this Agreement and protect the Service and its users from fraud or security threats; or as we determine is necessary to provide the Service or comply with applicable law” - From Amazon, source InfoWars report.
One would like to think that it wouldn't be to hard to figure out what that paragraph meant, although I suppose in today's messed up world it's possible people knowingly read the super fine print, and gave the rights to all their files to Amazon to do what they please. Wedding photos, inappropiate pictures your teenager took, pictures of a whole barrage of things that could make it even easier for cops to forcefully enter your home, and seize your property.


It seems that the once Sunny days of the internet are becomming more, and more gloom. Not supprisingly, the Microsoft Xbox, which already has question voice, and facial recognition features, will now allow cloud storage for their members.



I plan on making this part of a series on the creepy tracking, cloud society we're moving into. With the new trend to stay current is to track as much of your customers data as possible, with as little consent as possible, and do whatever you want with it.

The new tags I'll be using for these type articles are Prison Internet (known as Web2.0, internet restrictions, etc), and Clouds (such as this, and the Amazon cloud)
