We considered this when drafting the Bill. Since cloud computing might be overtaken in a year or two, we have a definition which is future proofed by defining "electronic device" in section 2 to include any device which includes any electrical, digital, magnetic, optical, electromagnetic, biometric or photonic means or other forms of related technology or any combination of any forms of technology to store or transmit data. I am told this is as comprehensive as we can get.
