From Google's vantage point if Android goes into the phone they get to sell ads.

Is that America's future-- borrowing, consuming, making nothing?

Reasonable question about future jobs.

Virtually every product Apple sells is not made in North America. Most of Apple's profit is shielded from US taxes in foreign countries.

The majority of the data files are rehearsal & photo call images from productions back when I shot for theatre & opera productions. I also do quite a bit of volunteer photography for groups that have a bad habit of losing their copies of the images & coming back to me for replacements. I still get calls for the images, so I can't get rid of them. Keeping all of them in a Lightroom image organizer makes it fast & easy to find an individual image, however ends up requiring lots of storage.

My travel & landscape photos make up a small portion of the total, although with the full frame D800, the size of the image database is growing fast.

I'll agree that for most users the cloud has some advantages, however photographers tend to have large data files that they often access, making slow internet connections troublesome. I still feel more comfortable keeping a local copy of ALL my files...

To answer a question with a question, what do you think robotics will do to our workforce?

What are we good at? I'm not sure if we do it good or well, but having money as input and money as output somehow works. Speaking of doing well by doing good....
