One thing that keeps me wired, so to speak, is the ease of accessing multiple types of data and programs from a single interface (my desktop). I loved the concept of the cloud, but it's too convoluted: password for this, user name for that, which email address did I use for this account again? Would you like to sign in with Facebook? Sure that sounds convenient. Oh wait, you want to access all my private information, share it with third parties, and advertise your products on my wall... no thanks! With my computer it's simple; Turn it on, type in my username and password once, and access everything from one platform. There needs to be some sort of universal gateway into the cloud so that I don't ever have to see this again "Not a member? Click here sign up."
