BBC Friday 16 May 2014 – “what’s new in the cloud” technology roundtable

Cloud Computing Update: Google Drive, Microsoft Office365, FireFox Browser Cloud Sync, and maybe a few other cloud-like spaces and services will be discussed.

This BBC Friday, we’re doing a roundtable discussion of how best to implement and utilize a “BBC Regulars” contact database.

BBC Regulars Annette Walker and Jason Omens will be moderating and getting us started.

As time allows, we’ll open the table to general technology questions and new APP/computing recommendations. Have a favorite app? Come and share it with your BBC mates.
