Last year on a sunny Saturday morning my computer froze ... again. Ten minutes later one of my kids come to me with yet another computer problem - this time it was a virus. I was on a tight deadline and needed to get some critical emails out. I decided at that moment that there had to be a better way.
It just so happened that I was already working on a project to make cloud computing mainstream, and realized that the ideal solution would be to combine a simple though low-energy consuming device with seamless integration of a consumer facing cloud computing user experience.
This combination made it possible to develop a computer that did the same thing as a traditional PC, but much cheaper, much "greener" and last but not least much more hassle-free.
