MediaTech: Internet/New Media: The Basics: Cloud Computing and Google Docs (U5-P6) [VID] fa12

Cloud computing: "the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a utility (like the electricity grid) over a network (typically the Internet)." (Wikipedia)

Cloud computing: "In essence, personal cloud computing means having every piece of data you need for every aspect of your life at your fingertips and ready for use. Data must be mobile, transferable, and instantly accessible. The key to enabling the portable and interactive you is the ability to synch up your data among your devices, as well as access to shared data. Shared data is the data we access online in any number of places, such as social networks, banks, blogs, newsrooms, paid communities, etc." (PC Mag)

What is Google Docs and how does it relate to the definitions of cloud computing given above?
