BoxFreeIT is a news and reviews website that covers cloud computing software for small business.
Small businesses no longer need the expense and hassle of running their own servers to gain the benefits of IT.
By using services based in "the cloud" (or internet) businesses can rent storage, backup, anti-virus, anti-spam and other IT services for much less money and far more easily than running it themselves.
Cloud means an end to backup tapes, software upgrades, expensive on-site IT calls and big, upfront purchases of desktop software.
Cloud software or software-as-a-service (or SaaS) is the easiest way that businesses can use the latest technology at the lowest price.
"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." - Arthur C. Clarke

If you find the ‘track changes’ function in your word processing program frustrating, look to cloud technology for more user-friendly solutions.
