Someone recently sent me an article about Paperspace.  You can pay a monthly fee and your computer is hosted in the cloud.  You just use a browser from any computer and login to your computer and have access to your entire desktop.

This idea is not new nor the first of its kind.  I do like the thin client (Paperweight) they sell which is currently $50 for a limited time.  This seems in line with a Raspberry Pi Kit which is between $50-$75 depending on what comes in the kit (the Pi itself is $35).  I wrote a week or two back about using the Pi as a thin client.  The Paperweight is sleeker of course because the Pi is really meant for educational purposes.  Everything in the cloud…how do we feel about that?
