Okay, so the rest of the story is worthwhile, but this brings up my own (echoed) question.  What, exactly, is cloud computing?? or, for that matter, Web 2.0.  Both have been used for everything from open source code to e-mails.  Hell, I’ll add a smiley and make this one Web 3.0.

P.S.  If you hassle Sony enough they’ll finally mail you a form to (cost free) return the DVDs in question.  What exactly they’ll do after that is unclear.  I ended up being in contact with the salesforce (which latter is truly encouraging, mind).
