Students at the University of Leicester have started a project working towards launching their very own satellite into Earth's orbit. Over twenty undergraduates from their Physics and Astronomy department at the university are working on the project, named "Plume", helped along by a neighbouring engineering company Magna Parva by donating the main body of the satellite itself.

OK, so maybe "cloudivity" isn't really a word, but it sounds good, doesn't it?I've covered how you can work anywhere using online office suites, and weighing the benefits between cloud and mobile computing.
Microsoft are probably the biggest and most influential software company in the world. I know, I don't like it much either but it hasn't done bad now, let's admit.
This makes life interesting - knowing what you could be earning in a few years time once you've got your degree. The idea behind this website is (other than extreme nosiness) available information on who is earning what, at which company.
The ability to work anywhere is a wonderful thing. The one thing students seem to struggle with nowadays is motivation factors and in my honest opinion, I would say because there are too many distractions when you're at university.
I thought I'd write some more "senseless low-quality crap that regularly fills ZDNet and that's only designed to draw readers in". I thank "kouzen" for his insight, but you Sir, are an idiot.
Another primarily UK-biased post for which I apologise for; this is old news but still very much valid. Microsoft and WebFusion partnered up some time ago to provide free web hosting to all British students.
There has been for some while “heated debates” amongst fellow blogospherians (probably not a word, don’t comment and bitch about it please) about all these cloud services we’re hearing about. First we had Windows Live SkyDrive which now offers 5GB of storage space, and rumours of GDrive keep hitting the news.
I was looking through the Channel 8 Students Union earlier on and noticed an important point concerning search engines. It's widely known that search engines are the most viewed websites on the Internet because they are the starting point to look for something.
I'm really ill at the moment, so I'll post this for the time being and see how I get along in the next few days. This is how students truly feel about technology; once it's become obsolete or worthless, it's time to give up and find something new.
