Games Interesting. The Verge summarises the loads of news and rumours coming out of OnLive today - much of the staff seems to have been laid off, and an acquisition could be imminent. Who will it be? Apple? Google? Microsoft? EA? Valve? CommodoreUSA?

Just do like I do, never thrust the cloud.

Applications should be in the desktop, not hosted in some other peoples computer.

If this means not playing a specific game or using an application, then be it. At least I have full control over the software and data I use.

...and you're telling us this using OSNews / the cloud ;p

(while there are distributed - and typically grabbing the data of interest for storage on your local system - news dissemination and discussion systems; Usenet being the prime example)
