Not only for dummies:
Some people live and die by their email. The nice thing about your email is you do not have to log into your home computer to get your email. You can log into any computer, tablet, mobile device, anywhere in the world and get the contents of your email.
Your email is not stored just on your home PC. It is accessible anywhere, hosted by your service provider granting you access from a coffee shop or even the neighbors house. This is the basic premise of cloud computing.
In the past your writing could only be saved to the computer that created it. With cloud computing, you can access that document from any PC, tablet or mobile anywhere in the world.
Cloud security continues to be the number one concern with end users, but truthfully, Facebook releases more personal info then cloud storage does.
Just as you adapted to email services, you can adapt to cloud computing. There really is no difference. Now, it’s not just your email access, rather you have access to all of your documents and images anywhere, any time.
