(+) My Macintosh in the Cloud

The following is a Plus Edition article written by and copyright by Dick Eastman. 

macintosh-cloud-logoOn Friday, I published a Plus Edition article entitled (+) My New Windows PC in the Cloud. I described a virtual Windows PC that I am now using for certain tasks. The PC does not sit on my desk. Instead, it is a piece of software that runs on a server in a data center someplace else. I don’t know where it is located, and location doesn’t really make much of a difference when using resources on the Internet.

That article is still available on the Plus Edition newsletter’s web site at http://eogn.com/wp/?p=40259. (A Plus Edition user name and password is required to read it.)

After publishing that article, several newsletter readers wrote to ask, “I’d like to do the same thing but would like to use a remote Macintosh computer. Is that available?”

The answer is, “Yes. I have been using a remote Macintosh computer for several years to run the mailing list for this newsletter.” In this article I thought I would describe the options available for Mac users.
