  1. Did you mean Harry Potter ?

    Although you didn’t mention it, I think Adobe deserves some credit their work in digital signatures w/Acrobat. It’s one of the few things I’ve seen that actually saves paper. It’t one of the green-est (is that a word) pieces of software I use.


  2. It would have been very interesting to see how Adobe intended to monetize it’s graphics tools such as Illustrator in the cloud computing paradigm. Kinko’s rents a design workstation by the hour and I would think Adobe’s on demand offerings will be in direct competition with this.

  3. Om, you are dangerously getting close to being called the “pulver of cloud computing”. The amount of cloud-computing in your articles in the past weeks is staggering. Pulver did the same thing to VoIP – over-hyped it to a point vendors could not deliver.

    Cloud == lots of vapor, usually.

    Do you know how many updates they push out? Because that is what is really causing the 8 million flash player downloads/installs on a daily basis.

  5. @Reader Ouch! Having followed the industry from the early days when a real estate company like Exodus passed itself as a data center technology leader, grid computing, the possibilities opened by fiber networks – don’t blame me for getting excited about the “future” predicted by experts is starting to come through.

    Cloud computing, generically speaking is going to be a big story for years to come because it is a fundamental technological shift, not a Web 2.0 toy. There are real dollars being invested in this market by real companies. VoIP unfortunately was a feature (a very important) masquerading as an industry.
