"Correct, MdDesign. To the bank it's not in the cloud. But to me it is. In the cloud essentially means it's on someone else's server."

Rob, they won't keep any datas outside their server because of various security reasons.

Nadine, I would imagine there will be quite a lot of IoT activity showcased at CES. It's certainly one of the leading trends.

IoT is evolving well.  Connecting smart appliances is the next wave.  I think LG has a few things coming up at CES on that topic.

"I was referring to email and banking as cloud services in the sense that the "cloud" is any data that is resident on someone else's server -- in this case, the internet provider's server and the bank's server."

Rob, thanks for the clarification. But banks are using their own servers and networks as a part of security reason.

Thanks Bobjengr. You're right about security and the cloud. We're in a neck and neck race between hackers and security developments. the race is likely to go on for years. There are too many advantages to networks and clouds to avoid the race.

I agree, Chuck. Health technology in all sorts of forms will grow in coming years, especially given the aging baby boom population.

"Cloud makes so much sense. We're already using it in our personal lives. My email and internet connection are effectively cloud services. Same with my bank and bill paying functions. None of that is resident on my computer."

Rob, you are right about the various email and bill payment services, but how many of us know that it's a cloud service. So far I didn't know any bank relying on cloud for their services. Banking and financial sector are the domains keeping themselves away from cloud because of security concern.

Excellent post and very informative.  I definitely feel we can all "buy-in" with Cloud Computing and Storage.  That's already well under way as you mention Rob.  The only thing (and I know I'm paranoid) is the security aspects of cloud storage.  It seems as though hackers have no real difficulties in rushing in at any time.  I feel "the cloud" is rife with opportunities.  I also agree that the medical field will see significant increased usage relative to the digital world.   I think we are eventually looking at a "universal medical data base" that can be accessed from any point on the globe.  Here again, privacy is key.  Again, great post.

Here's a variety of views into the complex production processes at Santa's factory. Happy Holidays!
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
Thanks to 3D printing, some custom-made prosthetic limbs, and a Lego set, one lucky dog and a tortoise has learned new tricks.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
With Radio Shack on the ropes, let's take a memory trip through the highlights of Radio Shack products.
