What is a cloud computer?
You are probably already using cloud computing and don’t even know it. If you are able to access your e-mail from any computer, for example by logging into your Gmail or Hotmail accounts, then your e-mail is being stored in the cloud.The cloud is an extension of the Internet, a network of computers that know how to communicate with each other and store and retrieve online data. It enables computers that were once incompatible and isolated to be linked through a giant network, or “cloud.”
Thanks to the thousands of miles of fiber-optic cable laid during the late 1990s, the speed of computer networks has finally caught up to the speed of the computer processor. Everyone from individuals to multinational corporations can now simply tap into the “cloud” to get all the things they used to have to supply and maintain themselves, saving time and money.
What is the difference between iSpaces and iCloud?
The biggest difference between Apple’s iCloud service and iSpaces is that iCloud is part of Apple’s overall services, providing a content backup/sync service in the cloud specifically designed to be used with Apple products. iSpaces is a cloud-based operating system, similar to that of Mac OS, Windows or Linux but built in the cloud and for the cloud, accessible through your browser. Providing much more than just a backup service, iSpaces has developed core apps for the OS, such as a browser, file manager, office document creator/editor, internet (VoIP) phone and contact manager that are available from any device, whether it runs on Mac, Windows or Linux.The iSpaces platform will be opened up to the developer community in the future for any worthy developer to build apps for the iSpaces App Store that will function on all devices on any platform, whether it be Mac OS, Windows, Linux, iOS, Windows Mobile or Android, a developer’s dream come true.
What is required to use iSpaces on my computer?
An internet connection and a browser. However, Java must also be enabled on your computer and in your browser
to take advantage of all the amazing features in iSpaces. Please ensure you’ve checked your computer’s Java Preferences in the Control Panel/System Preferences as well as in your browser’s Add-ons, Plugins or Extensions. For security reasons it is always recommended that you keep your Java up to date, as well as the latest software updates for your computer’s operating system. To confirm that Java is working in your browser, go to http://javatester.org/
. Currently, we recommend using the Firefox browser on Windows and Mac
Note: Even though your Java may appear to be enabled both in your browser and on your computer, your browser may be deactivating it. If you cannot use the apps in iSpaces to their full ability, please check for an icon in your browser’s navigation bar right as you login to iSpaces (see screenshot) to reactivate Java.
