Still basically "someone else's computer" in the end, no matter how it's managed.

It's a statement about the fact that the data you put in the "cloud" isn't stored in a magic secure place but in someone else's hard drive.

It doesn't excludes the fact that it has to be managed and that it's a lot of work.

 

Sometimes it feels like people mean "oh, it's just a computer running somewhere else", but it's also so much more around it.

But I see your point. "The cloud" isn't a magical place where code goes to live and make things happen.

 

For me it was always "someone else's computer" and not "someone else's computer". Privacy goes first and here you entrust your data to other people, not just upload it "to the Internet".
