    Apple To Challenge Google and Microsoft With Cloud OS?

    Apple has received a patent that hints to the intent of providing network computers that will boot through a “net-booted environment.”

    It may seem that Apple is moving slowly into the cloud computing age and that it has many assets that are simply not leveraged in what could be a massive cloud environment that could cause more than just a headache for Google and Microsoft. However, it appears that Apple has been working for some time on an operating system, conceivably a version of a next-generation Mac OS or iOS, that could boot computers and other devices via an Internet connection.
    Boot via the internet????

    And then they could have even MORE control over what you can and can't do with their devices.

    Not new................I have BIOSes at least 8 years old that give you a network booting option.

    Errrrrrrrrr................what does a dumb terminal do?............Apple certainly make plenty of those

    All this "cloud computing" is total marketing bull crap............it won't take off; because you cannot trust anybody A LAN or maybe even a WAN you can manage............the internet you cannot.
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
