WASHINGTON, Jan. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
Profile America — Sunday, January 26th. On this date 31 years ago, the infant personal computer was empowered to become something much greater than a glorified word processor with the release of the spreadsheet program Lotus 1-2-3. The popular program drew acclaim as the first "killer application." Finance and accounting workers were thus freed from hunching over ledger books and switched to hunching before a computer screen. The name "1-2-3" stemmed from the product's integration of three main capabilities — spreadsheet, charting and graphing, and rudimentary database operations. Today there are over 8,200 packaged software development firms in the U.S., employing almost 390,000 people. You can find current data on the country's economy by downloading the America's Economy mobile application at www.census.gov/mobile.
Profile America is produced by the Center for New Media and Promotions of the U.S. Census Bureau. These daily features are available as produced segments, ready to air, on the Internet at http://www.census.gov (look for "Multimedia Gallery" by the "Newsroom" button).

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
