Four Star sez: it's secure because it's teh cloud

Can't hack the cloud.  Wait, what?
Alan finds a Four Star who needs to wipe the drool from his chin.  Seems that the Brass thinks that moving crappy security from the physical realm into a set of Datacenter racks will magically sprinkle the security dust on everything.

Ooooooh kaaaaaay.

Because nobody would ever figure out how to hack the cloud.  I mean, that's just crazy talk.  Next thing, you'll tell me I can't play Playstation Network or something.  Or that Popular Science tells people how to hack the cloud.

I mean, the security of the Cloud is as solid as the Euro.  Srlsy.  You can take that to the bank.

'You can take that to the bank.'
Wasn't that the bad-guy politician's line in Hard to Kill?

Speaking of cloud computing,

How does Near field communications fit into this concept. Especially, in regards to making payments?
I've recently hear, that NFC is supposed to be very big, but it sounds pretty scary to this old ludite.
