10. Anything Everything on the go

9. Search through ALL my mail

8. Chat with customers and partners in any language

7. Collaborate simply and securely on projects with Sites and Docs

6. Organize all my business travel with email

5. Easily collect data from co-workers and customers in Forms

4. Build any scalable business application on the cloud platform

3. Use online templates for documents, spreadsheets and presos

2. Run FAST, secure, and stable web apps

And finally, the No. 1 thing I can do in the cloud that I couldn’t do a year ago…

1. Securely share Video in Apps

OK, maybe some of these things were around a year ago. But the overall theme is that the cloud offers more flexibility today than it did a year ago. What are you doing in the cloud today that you weren’t do a year ago? Glotzbach said his original list had 30-40 items but he cut it down. As for myself, via Facebook, I’m reconnecting with people that I drifted away from and staying connected with people who otherwise might vanish from my day-to-day life. And I can stay connected regardless of where I am or which device I use.

What would you add to the list?
