What's cloud computing and thoughts on it? There is talk about it at work and I haven't the foggiest what they are on about!
For the end user, it's basically about storing more and more of your data and work online. For example, rather than save an important Word document on your computer, have it saved and accessible online making it less likely to be lost with hardware failure and being able to access it from anywhere.
Google Docs is an example of cloud computing. You create a document, spreadsheet or presentation online, save it online, access it online. None of it is stored locally on your computer.
Microsoft also now allow people to save documents on their servers (their 'cloud').
