Many people own both a desktop and laptop, a tablet and other devices. What about those who only have 1 device (just a computer), like me? How do these people benefit from cloud? I know you could use the cloud to access your files at work, but how often do you need that?
People who only use a single computer (or device) can still benefit from the cloud in the way of protection against data loss from hardware failure and not having to do any backups on your own (you can be lazy! ). There's also the "access work data from home" thing, and depending on the circumstances such a thing might be irrelevent, just convenient, or absolutely required for you.

Email is probably a form of "cloud storage" that most of us can relate to. Our emails are usually stored on servers that we don't own nor even know the location of, and we can access our emails anywhere we have an internet connection. Even those of us who only use one computing device still benefit greatly from email, so there's that to answer your question in another way as well.

I understand local hardware can fail at any time and it can be great having important files backed up to a cloud service. But don't forget that cloud services can be subject to malicious attacks of all kinds so data stored there can be lost to attackers. But if they have great protection against such attacks it shouldn't be a huge deal. Just like with local hardware, you have to take care of it, otherwise.. you're done.

About email, I haven't really thought of email as "cloud" but you make a good point there, now I see how it can be helpful having cloud. But I don't think we're ready going "all cloud" yet.

Decoding the hidden messages in Satya Nadella's letter to Microsoft employees

Summary: Microsoft's CEO posted a public letter aimed only incidentally at employees. When you get past the corporate rah-rah, here are five key messages to take away.

...1. Microsoft isn’t doing things Mr. Ballmer’s way anymore.
...2. Microsoft’s future is about experiences, not products or services.
...3. Windows 13, Office 2.
...4. If you’re an engineer, prepare for some changes.
...5. Microsoft increasingly plays on a global stage.

If that doesn't turn out to be a magnificent and hilarious failure that'd put Windows 8 to shame, the world might just be ending.

How do you 'reinvent productivity'? Shall we reinvent the wheel? Reinvent the economy? Reinvent food? Reinvent music?

Productivity has kept this world turning for decades, even centuries. Get your head out of your arse MS, statements like this are utterly ridiculous.

Oh I guess if they are going to reinvent productivity, I guess we can reinvent our way of life in general completly.

Two things: Ribbon and Metro.

Gods know what they've got up their sleeve next. :P

I actually like the ribbon. The "GUI Formerly Known as Metro" is a whole 'nuther story.

Well I guess that means whoever has a birthday on the day Windows 9 is released will get an urban present with a ribbon cable on it.
