Kim Komando - Computing in the cloud
QUOTE: There is an acronym--SaaS, or software as a service. Cloud, as used by geeks, refers to the Internet. So, people computing in the cloud are running software on somebody else's computers. They access those computers via the Internet. The computers could be next door or overseas. When they do that, they don't have to install the software. They don't have to update it. They don't have to upgrade whenever a new version appears. They don't need more powerful computers to run new versions.
