  • Used to be called Useful Freeware <br /> After trimming out all the crap, I came to the real meat
  • Let&#x2019;s say you have no idea what I&#x2019;m talking about. You might not.
  • What is the cloud? Cloud computing?
  • Simple: the Internet is the cloud. Everything happens, and is based in, the cloud. <br /> Your data is in the cloud.
  • Good question: so what if your data is in the cloud? Little scary? <br /> Don&#x2019;t worry. Key to cloud computing: data location. Local and non-local.
  • The thing about cloud computing is just that: it&#x2019;s in the cloud.
  • If your computer happens to get destroyed, no worries.
  • If your computer happens to get destroyed, no worries.
  • If your computer happens to get destroyed, no worries.
  • Computer not with you? Log in.
  • Get to your data wherever you&#x2019;re at.
  • Lot of cloud services allow you to share things &#x2014; totally optional, you have complete control over what&#x2019;s shared
  • First one: Evernote. <br /> This, and the next one I show, has nearly single-handedly saved a semester. <br /> Hard drive died in October. Had all my notes on it. Except they were in Evernote.
  • With free account you could put almost everything you&#x2019;d ever want into Evernote <br /> With premium account, you CAN <br /> Type text notes, save pictures, diagrams, photos, audio, PDFs...
  • Available for more platforms than you can shake a stick at
  • Some uses: again, I used these
  • There&#x2019;s not much limit to the things you can do with Evernote; use your imagination!
  • Some technologies are emerging for Evernote use
  • Amazing. My favorite.
  • Great service: lifesaver <br /> Both you and I&#x2019;ll get extra quarter gig
  • Available on most main platforms, even iPhone for mobile
  • Keeps things in sync <br /> Work on something on your home computer, pull it up online from work <br /> Saves you from having to carry a USB drive everywhere
  • Just a folder <br /> Share link to files with friends <br /> Email a link to a file on the go with iPhone app
  • Touch on a few others in closing
