The race of Cloud Computing

I wrote earlier about a news digest app returning supplemental information which is not directly related to the article. Today, I read on the app that the horse "Cloud Computing" has won the Preakness race. And sure enough, there is a box underneath the article with a definition of cloud computing from Wikipedia. What is ironic is that this news summary is probably enabled by leveraging cloud computing. "Cloud Computing" won over "Classic Empire" by coming in from behind and won the race by a head. Perhaps this is an indication how cloud computing will overtake the classical empire of on premise computingšŸ˜Š.
