Today, we live in a world in which the proverbial “cloud,” which is just another fancy name for the functions of the Internet, is getting to be more and more trusted than it has ever been before. The great thing about this cloud is that, unlike most clouds, it has no intention of ever raining on anybody’s parade at all. This cloud wants to provide things for us right now, and help us to do things which would otherwise be very difficult. But of course, there is always a downside to everything, and the downside to the cloud is that it can fail at any time, often for very capricious reasons. For this reason, we need to download things.
When you find a program that you want to work with, play with, or just generally use on a regular basis, download it immediately. While it may sound like a maniac who wears a tin foil hat would be the only person who is worried about the Internet failing at some sudden whim, that is the way it is. At any moment, the Internet could suddenly cease to function. Did reading that in such unvarnished terms give you a little shiver of terror? If so, don’t worry about it, because you are just a person of the 21st century.
In this day and age, it seems like a person can barely blow their nose without having the Internet around to hold their facial tissue for them. But no matter whether you are an online worker, an online gamer or just a person who goes online to check out funny pictures of cats, you are going to be far better served if you download as much as you possibly can of the features that the Internet provides to you. After all, nobody in this world knows when, but it is going to fail one of these days.
