Re: Power
@dc Car companies are adding more technology without a lot of thought about security. It only makes sense to start charging for storage.

Re: Power
@elizabethv As car companies slowly become more like technology companies, I can absolutely see them charging for storage and other cloud services. 

The best example of this is GM's OnStar, a service that can do a number of things for car owners. I bet GM makes a killing off of OnStar, and knows providing more technology to drivers is going to boost margins.

Re: Power
@freehe - That's a great point! It would likely depend on what exactly was using the service that would determine if someone was willing to pay for it. It makes sense to need additional memory storage for a phone. But a car might depend on your usage. If you don't generally listen to your own music in the car, you might not really need any kind of storage space. However, a friend of mine has the ability to store music on their car radio, and I can definitely see them wanting more storage space. So while a car might seem odd to some, I could see others finding it really useful.

CT Cloud Computing
It is great that CT gets it and have developed a strategic plan to implement cloud computing.

This seems very doable and a great approach to cloud computing. "There are three major trends. First is building more intelligent networks. Second is collaborating with more industry partners. Third, our business models continue to evolve. Our goal is to provide comprehensive, cost-effective and intelligent information services, offering access anytime, automatic responsiveness and an true-to-life experience."

Re: Power
@afwriter, I agree but i also think it depends on the product or service.

People are willing to pay for the cloud for their iphone but may not want to pay for the cloud for their smart car.

Re: Power
@dcawrey, I felt the same way. I said I am never paying for their cloud service and still won't even if they continue to lower the prices.

Re: Power
@dcawrey, I agree, many companies rushed to use cloud computing hoping to lower overall costs but cloud computing is just as expensive if not more expensive.

Re: Power
One example of people paying a lot for cloud services might be Apple's iCloud. When I look at their pricing model, I'm surprised people will pay that much. When Apple first launched this service, I thought it was a stupid idea. Turns out they know a lot more than I do about their customers.

Re: Power
@afwriter - I completely agree. If something makes your life a little easier, you are willing to pay more for it. The cloud has proved to be one such a benefit that people are willing to pay more for just about anything that uses the cloud. It gives a useful location for memory to go, without customers having to pay an arm and a leg for it.
