Never understood why anyone would trust their data, files, eBooks, whatever to the cloud. Just seems silly with disk storage so cheap now days.

You have to be truly foolish to put all your data on the cloud and entrust it's safe keeping to some faceless organisation on the other side of the globe. Especially when you can purchase external USB terabyte drives for under a hundred quid. I have 5 of them plus a NAS server. I'm afraid the argument about cost and storage is just plain wrong. The cost of storage is falling all the time.
It is true that everything is being stored in electronic form but there is still billions of books out there and there always will be. The difference will be that the number of printed references will be much fewer as everyone uses the electronic for convenience. In order for all references to a topic to be distorted the TPTB (if they exist) will have suppress and control the information across the globe, across all cultures including the ones with their own different (DUH) manipulation of history. This will not happen, there are too many meglomaniacs with their own version of the truth for this to occur!
