Despite a slow market and a slight decrease in the resale value of most
remodeling projects, REALTORS® report that the smartest home improvement
investments may also be some of the least expensive. Results from the 2009

Cloud Interoperability Magazine on Ulitzer

utility. The same status as roads, water, and electricity. As an American,
the next generation will have broadband network access as an entitlement. But

Carr, in “the Big Switch” discusses cloud computing being analogous to
the power grid. The only difference is for cloud computing to be really
