The Atlantic writes: "The news Thursday evening that Egypt had severed itself from the global Internet came at the same time as an ostensibly far less inflammatory announcement closer to home. Verizon, the telecom giant, would acquire "cloud computing company" Terremark for $1.4 billion. The purchase would "accelerate Verizon's 'everything-as-a-service 39; cloud strategy," the press release said.
The trouble is that Terremark isn't merely a cloud computing company. Or, more to the point, the cloud isn't really a cloud."
