Scott McKay: Hewlett Packard is known
for their basic, affordable, no frills computers but that doesn’t mean they can’t
keep up with the latest technology. In a press release yesterday HP said “We
are excited to begin offering that cloud thing that everyone is talking about.
We definitely have the cloud on our computers and it is better
than anyone else’s cloud.” Earlier today I sat down with HP’s spokesman
Gary Klinman who said the company couldn’t wait to show people
“How they do their cloud stuff.” Gary Klinman: We are absolutely thrilled
that now people with computers or phones, both, will now be able to back things
up to the cloud and that’s definitely something that people do and they
will be doing it with HP. Scott McKay: HP is making their
cloud technology the centerpiece of a major new print and television ad campaign.
Male Speaker: HP is the company I’ve always relied on so when I decided to get
on my computer on the cloud which is how you do it naturally HP was the company I chose.
HP’s cloud is the perfect tool for emails, Facebook, texting, and CD ROMs.
How does the cloud work? It’s so simple and intuitive I don’t need
to waste your time explaining it. Scott McKay: Klinman says it isn’t
surprising they’re “up on the cloud” considering they’re on the cutting edge
of all the latest tech trends. Now are there any additional features?
Gary Klinman: Cloud sourcing is something we are having.
Cloud sourcing 2.0 – we have social sharing, we have 4G, 5G,
6G, really all the Gs. We have app, we have all of it in the computer.
Scott McKay: Despite all of their wide array of technology HP says they’re
most excited about the cloud. They even let me take a peek at their
design laboratory where HP engineers were trying out some unique development techniques.
So how much capacity will HP’s cloud users have access to? Male
Speaker: One thousand. Scott McKay: We’ll be watching to
see if HP’s cloud push pays off. Make sure to catch he next Tech Trends
when we’ll be looking at Body Dew, the popular new device that links with
your iPhone to post all of your bodily functions right to Facebook.
