In '85 a small disk storage unit was the size of an American washing machine and had a storage capacity that most folks would find amusing today!

I see the cloud as a commercial response to advancing technology.

That is to say that they realized that storage space is increasing in capacity while decreasing in physical size, to the point that we may soon be able to hold such extremely vast quantities of data that we'll eventually be able to hold all the information in the world on one chip in our hand.

When this happens and processor speeds sufficiently increase, a civilian could complete very large computing projects. This could compete with industry.

I don't think google or the government wants you developing a "warp drive" or something that competes with their products, so the only way to stop that sort of capability is to squash it before it gets here.

If they make it so you can't buy a computer that stores data, and they choose who has access to storage, then the corporations can limit such development even when we get 375 core "octohertz" processors and 900 terabytes of RAM.

At that point, only "hackers" that butcher equipment and make new storage solutions or otherwise circumvent the cloud will have any ability to challenge this sort of thing.
