The Internet is basically a limitless font of digitized informationAnything and everything can and has ended up on some sort of website at some point in the past three decades.  The trick is organizing and updating that information while making it easy to access.

You probably use cloud applications every day. Some notable examples are Facebook, Gmail, and Flickr. There are many benefits to an operating system that fully harnesses the power of the cloud, which is exactly what Google sets out to do with Chrome OS.
