The Latest in Cloud Computing

Cloud computing - the latest handle attached to the idea of hosted Web services used by consumers and businesses - is beginning to get considerable traction now that there are more companies offering services online. Consumers have always bought books and music, auctioned off unneeded items, or found jobs and home using services running on the Internet. But now they're storing personal files, meeting future mates and running entire businesses using services to which they can subscribe. This all means that people and enterprises don't have to set up their own IT systems anymore to get work done.
