The Spring DEMO 2010 is underway in Palm Springs, where selected start-ups show off what they got. One of them is AirSet, which unveiled a personal cloud computing service.
The AirSet service is supposed to make it easy for anyone to manage all the important groups in their life by setting up a network of servers in the cloud.
Each user gets their own Personal Cloud Computer and can add Group Cloud Computers to their Cloud Network. Each cloud computer has an expandable hard disk, a suite of web applications, and acts as a web server publishing content 24/7.
The Personal Cloud Computer also serves as a data hub, automatically synchronizing information and content across an owner's devices.

An unlimited number of people can be invited to join a Group Cloud Computer to share files, coordinate schedules, collaborate on documents, participate in online discussions, and conference real-time via Skype.
The basic service is free, supported by advertising, but at $2.95/month, members can upgrade to Personal Premium to remove ads, have added security, and expand their online storage to 5GB.

The description of the AirSet Personal Cloud computing service sounds to me like a hosted collaboration service that are around since years. Only difference is that it is now in the so called cloud. The whole cloud computing is again one of these hyped marketing terms that become totally over-used and behind the term is just old technology.
Oracle CEO Larry Ellison brings the point home about the cloud computing hype in this very fun must see interview. "Don't believe the Hype!"

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
