"I really worry about everything going to the cloud... I think it's going to be horrendous."
- Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak voices his concerns about the future of cloud-based services.

Wozniak is echoing the thoughts of many game players, who are reluctant to do away with games on physical media in favor of a cloud-based future that is seeming more likely by the day.

It's a common sentiment among players, but it's rare to see a high-profile, influential person in the tech space speaking out against cloud storage so directly, going as far as to say that he is expecting "a lot of horrible problems" in the next five years.

"With the cloud, you don't own anything," Wozniak says. "You already signed it away."
