What is "cloud" computing?

Supposedly we are on the verge of the "Pre" era and there will be cloud computing.

Isn't "Quickipedia" a semi-cloud computing program? Here is the review:
http://www.palminfocenter.com/news/...palm-os-review/

Of course people can use Wapipedia for free so Quickipedia is not really necessary....

Isn't "Yelp" another type of cloud or group blog type of resource available sort of website?

Addenum:The definition:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_computing

Examples of Cloud computing:
http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-12519_...2547-1040_3-0-5
The working example is a spam filter....

What is "cloud computing"? I think it's doing everything over a web connection. Run an application from over the web. Save your stuff over the web. It's something that turns me off in a big, big way. The web is nice, but depending on it in such a way is crazy in my opinion.

Yes another source says the same thing:

I suppose Palm is being a salesman and trying to make more money instead of offering a platform that supports programs that ordinary people can program or use without relying on Palm...

Cloud computing is great... until the server gets comprimised... until the server goes down... until the admin f***s up...

It's all about CONTROL and hence CASH FLOW. I wonder what the monthly fees will be.

When can cloud computing cut costs? Well for big companies maybe yes there are savings scaled to usage....

No major company would risk having their data held hostage by a third party

Cloud computing smells like Big Brother.

You don't need to be a major company to refuse the nonsense of cloud computing and individual person wouldn't either.

Another article, What happens if the 'Cloud' bursts?
http://news.cnet.com/8301-13846_3-1....html?tag=mncol
Hopefully the sites will be more transparent and tell you how often they are offline...

Hi,

I remember when the servers of RIM had issues and went offline, total chaos.

This idea could have the same results.

RIM rarely goes down but yes it could happen to cloud computing. In fact if solar flares are really strong definitely a lot of cloud computing could fail along with Satelite television....

Hi,

My comment was referring back several years ago when the servers of RIM were not as stable as they are currently.

Just takes one outage to put the whole east coast from being able to get their information stored in those "Clouds".

Indeed it does. Service outages ("cloud bursts") and lack of security as well as the big brother aspsect make the whole thing unsavory.

It will also mean significant job losses in the IT sector.
