Funny Quotes about the Internet and the Cloud

I don’t generally post funny things on this blog site, but these two quotes, worth re-quoting, were sent to me this week. I had such a good laugh from both of them that I wanted to share them with everyone.IMG_1400

This first one reminds me of something my dad shared with me when I was a teenager: “Don’t believe everything you read”. This has been updated for the 21st century:

The trouble with quotes from the Internet is that you can never know if they are genuine. Signed, Abraham Lincoln”

The second one answers a question that I am often asked by customers and friends:
“What is ‘the cloud’?”

imageI usually respond with this analogy: “If I move your computer box to another room where you can’t see it, but you can keep your monitor, keyboard and mouse and you can continue to work – that’s ‘the cloud’. It’s a computer you can’t see!”

“There is NO CLOUD, just some other people’s computers”

Ballad of a WiFi Hero

I don’t normally post a video on this site, but anyone who has helped a parent or grandparent or friend with an Internet issue at home will get a good laugh over this very clever animated video. Enjoy!
