I asked @IBMCloud on Twitter, how would they update their “Flying Cars” commercial from 2000 now that Cloud computing is such a major part of the technology landscape. I checked my twitter @mentions this morning to find this reply.
I have to say this is a use case that I hadn’t considered. However, this is exactly the type of usage of the Cloud that isn’t about saving computing costs but about increasing productivity and adding to the bottom line. Could this application be built without the Cloud or was it that the platform that IBM provided allowed the concept at all?
