I wonder how different would the business model of "cloud computing" be from the 1980 "time sharing" business model?

I've been wondering how long it would before the "lofty cloud model" made contact with "road dirt". Accenture's Jellison's posit that "Selling cloud services is radically different than selling servers and switches..., It's almost like being a telco or cable company," is the most accurate description to date. The fact that we are this far into the game for this realization is a bit shocking though not an unexpected one...,

The companies entering into cloud services business must first focus the small and medium enterprises as their customers. Especially the small enterprises which cannot afford to have their own servers, software license fees and support staff and continuous upgrades in hardware and software , will be ready to jump on to the cloud services which provide them on-tap solutions. These companies will be ready to adapt whatever business models the service provider offers.

It's interesting that we don't talk about supercomputing in the cloud structure. I think mainly, it's because this article is focused on for-profit technology leaders. However, there universities and government industries also looking into cloud service advantages (They may be sticking to the traditional business models for now). I think this report would be interesting if it defined the cloud services being reported on. In addition, what is the difference between (if there is one) remotely hosting vs. virtualization? What about the security of cloud computing? I would also love to see a diagram or two which provides the overview of cloud computing services (mindmapping) versus traditional offerings.

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
