ATG Hot Topic: A Crowd in the Cloud

With Apple’s announcement last week of its I Cloud Service, it joins an already crowded enterprise and consumer space. Google wants you online using Chromebooks, the Google cloud dedicated laptop. Amazon wishes you well with your browser but would mostly love to have you Kindle up free with your music and books until you hit the dew point of 5GB and you pay. Apple stuff will be free–all others pay an annual $25.00. Lined up already are all the Carbonite’s and Muzzy’s of the world backing up your data. This will be a hot topic, a heat wave which won’t cool down at the Autumnal Equinox. Hot question: will we name our clouds?

By the way, Steve Jobs says this will kill the PC (the day the PC died…singing…)
