The world’s first absolutely free online computer was launched on April 23, 2009. Swedish company Xcerion announced the launch of the unique system icloud in New York.
Cloud technologies represent an Internet service that provide software to clients having no personal computers and those who can not access their computers at a certain moment.
Similar services are already available from other world-known systems, although they only provided small basic packages free of charge.
The now available version of icloud provides 3 GB of memory free of charge to keep one’s documents, photographs and music online. One can access their documents from any computer that is connected to the Internet. The free package also includes 30 free programs with office applications, email, music, video, instant messaging, games, 20 free widgets and other opportunities.
Icloud does not need to be downloaded: it operates through Internet Explorer or Firefox browsers. One only needs to register a profile to become the owner of a virtual computer.
