The Cloud

Nothing has caused as much hyperbole as "The Cloud".  But it is here. There isn't much to it.  All it means is that data-centers are storing information that you need, rather than on your own Personal Device (ie. PC).

In a way it is a return to the old Mainframe/Terminal days=DataCentre/Personal Device.

My fav cloud App is Tune-In on the iphone.  With this app I can listen to all the radio & internet stations around the world and record it if I want to. There is stuttering and the sound quality isn't as good as CD, but hey what a choice I have. Perhaps it truly isn't a cloud product but it is pretty close.
