ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5

Cloud computing

Cloud computing is a way of using computers on the internet to do things. Instead of buying your own computer and downloading the software you want, you rent services from a company so that you can access all the programs and applications you need from anywhere. This makes it easier because you don't have to carry around a big computer and can access the same programs and files from all your different devices like your phone, tablet, or laptop.
