The cloud. It's a distributed network of servers that receives and distributes content to remote clients. In essence, the cloud is the internet, an the internet is the cloud. But how do we best make use of the cloud? That's exactly what cloud week was all about.
Cloud Week Recap
Talk Mobile Clouds week dove head first into the world of clouds, bridging the internet, mobile, and desktop computing in one fell swoop. It was less about the individual features of each cloud service and more about how these clouds fit into our lives, how they can improve our digital lives, and where they're going in the future.

Talk Mobile has always been about elevating the discussion - not just what we write about, but what you in the community are talking about. The Mobile Nations community has definitely stepped up to that challenge, taking on our questions, our statements, and each other in broad and spirited debates about the state of mobile. And really, that shouldn't be a surprise, given how awesome you all are.
We've picked out the best comments from the past week and have them presented below. If yours has been singled out as a winning comment, keep an eye on your email, because we have some awesome prizes to send your way!
