Cloud -Based BS

I've been in IT for a few (30-ish) years and I've seen more than a few waves of marketing hype come and go. One of the current buzzwords is the 'cloud'. The cloud certainly has its place but like anything else there are appropriate applications and inappropriate. The trick is to distinguish between the two. 

Examples of foolish applications of the label 'cloud' are everywhere but I think this takes the cake.

Cloud-Based Cat Litter.

Heaven help me but I just know there's gotta be a cat litter app in the wings. 

Added random bonus: How is White Cloud like the original Star Trek? They both circle Uranus and wipe out Klingons.
