View Thread: Marketing the "Cloud"
  • User profile image

    maybe i'm being picky but it seems like marketing is throwing buzz words around. In this commercial, a couple is stranded in an airport. it looks like the guy remotes into his home computer, then COPY and PASTES a video onto his local machine to watch the video.

    how is this cloud computing?

    i thought cloud computing referred to a specific set of technologies in scalable hosting and storage that did almost nothing on the client machine. can someone set me straight? if this commercial is right, what is cloud computing?
