As mobile meets cloud

We are in the midst of the emergence of two revolutionary technologies; cloud computing and smart mobile devices.  As these two technologies co-evolve they are driving the development of a new computing paradigm. Cloud computing centres, accessible through the Internet, produce shared pools of resources (e.g., software, storage, virtual machines) that can be run with much lower capital and management costs than traditional computing servers. Smart mobile devices have become ubiquitous tools for both content consumption and content creation.
