Yes, shehan, but as I say in my comment (and as it says in the article), I think these concerns are sometimes unfounded and perhaps people should take a different view of security and the cloud, a view that might cause them to rethink and adopt it.

Our younger generation will have a rough go. It is better to think positive. There is this good site I came across that can help you get pre-approved for a brand new car. It can even assist you in finding the vehicle you need to purchase at a car dealership near you. Having a loan already at hand is a ton of help, especially because it is almost impossible to pay cash for an automobile. How many times have you sought additional info about a used or new car or truck and resorted to an online search on auto loan center? Your search is over, all the info you will want is at CarDealExpert.com! Need to know more about Car Deal Expert?

I think performance has to be balanced in as well.  I worked at a company that required the parts library be on the server and the engineer not use a local copy.  Whenever a design was opened locally all the parts in the design would have to be fetched over the network, slowing work for the engineer as well as everybody else on the network.  It impacted system performance for the entire company.  Yes, in a cloud system all of the library parts would be in the cloud, but in a similar fashion, every change at the workstation would require huge amounts of data to be sent to the workstation, slowing down everyone sharing the same Ethernet connection.  Imagine the amount of data being sent to an engineering firm at 9AM every morning.  I wouldn't be able to stream the morning news.

@William: Was it Dropbox? Many of these cloud services, including my company (Lagoa), operate on a "Freemium" model - basic use or limited storage is free, with a fee to use more than that. For instance, with Lagoa the program is exactly the same as the pay version, just with limited render time; with Dropbox, same thing, except you have a 2GB storage limit. So a lot of this stuff is free, at least to start with.

 

@tekochip: Interesting point. I'm not familiar enough with the networking fundamentals to properly address it, but I am curious as to the implications.

Jordan, I have no recollection of what that service/program was called. But it did function fairly well, and there were never any problems that I was aware of.

Of course we also kept files on our local computers, and then would do a "synchronize" after we were done working on something. So we did not need to wait for things to be uploaded. Those elsewhere  who needed the files would send a message asking if chages were happening, or would happen, and a simple time and date check could identify when a new version was needed. So the updating was only done when it had to be, which saved huge amounts of bandwidth time.  A file datestamp check takes only a very few seconds.

It seems that gears have been around forever -- what could be new?
The use of ZNE technology buildings not only reduces cost and creates renewable energy, but it can give a boost to the economy. The implementation and execution will require a workforce, which means the result can be increased employment.
The use of CFD is more profound in automobile design because of the diverse physics involved. It can be used to optimize components for downsizing and reducing the environmental footprint while maintaining or improving operational efficiency.
A Detroit automaker was struggling with a semi-manual, labor-intensive parts receiving process. Workers had enter parts into a spreadsheet manually at a stationary workstation. This stopped the receiving process dead in its tracks. A better system was needed.
Pressure sensors can be used in a wide range of applications. It’s imperative that they’re suited for use in hazardous situations and are fully compliant with one of several protection standards.
