The Personal Cloud Trumps the Personal Computer

Your Next PC? The Personal Cloud, of Course

Since the introduction of the personal computer, we all like to longingly think about what our next PC will have. Will it be lighter? Will it have better graphics? Will it be faster? And the biggest question of all, do we really need all of the latest and greatest features. All of these are questions we ponder when a new operating system is released, or when our current PC just decides to quit functioning (usually at the most inopportune of times).

Well, what will your next PC be? No, it is not your next Personal Computer, it is your Personal Cloud! That’s right, the next PC you invest in may well be a Personal Cloud.

The Apple iPad is just the beginning of this move from the Personal Computer to the Personal Cloud. With the iPad, Apple has hit a grand slam, scored a hattrick, a touchdown, or any other superlative sports metaphor you can conjure up. The iPad is the next step in the computing revolution.

If you think Steve Jobs, the Roark of technology, would build a device such as the iPad to simply kill off wireless reading devices, well then DOS 2.0 with two 360Kb floppy disks is probably sufficient for your needs.

The iPad allows us to be free in many different capacities. The largest point of tethering for us all has been our favorite applications or apps in more modern parlance. Cloud companies are enabling infrastructure and allowing each and every one of us to work with the infrastructure we need and want instead of what we have.

The next step for the cloud? Offering up a PC, of course, a Personal Cloud to be more precise to go along with a device that truly allows technology to work for us.

The PC (Personal Cloud) will be available when, where, and how you need it. Your PC will have complete elasticity and give you only what you ask for – nothing more, nothing less. Think about having your business apps when you need them as well as your own personal apps when and where you need them.

There are software vendors in the market today that see the need to deliver upon the next PC, that is Personal Cloud. These vendors are enabling the business side of the PC, Personal Cloud, and know that rapid environment replication with the apps you need, when and where needed is essential.

Look at companies such as CloudShare and VMLogix to deliver on this new PC. And, look at companies such as Citrix and Salesforce.com that have been innovating on this idea for years.

When you think about your next PC, make it a Personal Cloud.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
