More than half of Americans think cloud computing is affected by stormy weather

You couldn’t make it up. The recent The Citrix Cloud Survey conducted by Wakefield Research reports that 51% of the Americans questioned said they thought cloud computing was affected by stormy weather.

While it is widely known that America can be a bifurcated and inward-looking country and some people get Iran confused with Israel, this opens up a whole new vista (sorry) for technology.

In the UK we are used to trains running late because of the ‘wrong leaves’, but look forward to people believing solar power being affected by too few Sun newspaper readers (hurrah!). Or maybe slow internet speeds caused by a traffic jam on the A27?

If you have stories about either awful excuses or shocking findings from research, please share them with us.
