Another market niche for Amazon? Cloud Computing

Amazon continues to be opportunistic in market areas that other companies (notably Microsoft) have failed to exploit. One of Amazon’s early experiments with “cloud computing” ties to the Kindle…once you have read a book, you can “archive” it via cloud computing so it doesn’t take up capacity on your device but you can retrieve it on any PC whenever you feel like it. An ingenious way to expand Kindle’s reach, and just the beginning for Amazon. The latest release of Office is one of the first times Microsoft has tried to make a dent in this business, as far as I can tell.
