Readers determine what cloud computing looks like and how it is revolutionizing their education today. They evaluate its use in social collaboration, data storage and utility computing, Google Apps, Docs, and Maps, email, banking and shopping, pictures, movies, and music, mobile apps and services, and how the cloud is used in everyday life. The text explains the basics in this rapidly evolving technology along with its use in business applications. Drawbacks of cloud computing are also addressed, including issues of security, privacy, and ethics, and access, control, and stability concerns. Sidebars such as "Myths and Facts" and "10 Great Questions to Ask an Information Specialist" and other cool tech facts provide supplementary details.
