Cloud computing is an expression used to describe a variety of computing concepts that involve a large number of computers connected through a real-time communication network such as the Internet. In science, cloud computing is a synonym for distributed computing over a network, and means the ability to run a program or application on many connected computers at the same time. The phrase also more commonly refers to network-based services, which appear to be provided by real server hardware, and are in fact served up by virtual hardware, simulated by software running on one or more real machines. Such virtual servers do not physically exist and can therefore be moved around and scaled up (or down) on the fly without affecting the end user - arguably, rather like a cloud.
The popularity of the term can be attributed to its use in marketing to sell hosted services in the sense of application service provisioning that run client server software on a remote location.
Google Voice (formerly GrandCentral) is a telecommunications service by Google launched on March 11, 2009. As of October 2009[update], Google Voice had some 1.4 million users, 570,000 of whom used the service 7 days a week. This number has risen markedly since Google made the transition of its Google Voice service from 'invitation only' to be available to all Gmail subscribers in the USA]citation needed[. However, Google has not released a more recent number of users, claiming only that it is in the millions.]this quote needs a citation[
The service is configured and maintained by the user in a web-based application, styled after Google's e-mail service, Gmail, or through the service's Android and iOS apps. Google Voice currently[update] provides free PC-to-phone calling within North America, and PC-to-PC voice and video calling worldwide between users of the Google Voice and Video Chat browser plugin (available for Windows, Intel-based Mac OS X, and Linux).
Fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) is a change in telecommunications that removes differences between fixed and mobile networks.
In the 2004 press release announcing its formation, the Fixed Mobile Convergence Alliance said:
In journalism, a human interest story is a feature story that discusses a person or people in an emotional way. It presents people and their problems, concerns, or achievements in a way that brings about interest, sympathy or motivation in the reader or viewer.
Human interest stories may be "the story behind the story" about an event, organization, or otherwise faceless historical happening, such as about the life of an individual soldier during wartime, an interview with a survivor of a natural disaster, a random act of kindness or profile of someone known for a career achievement.
