Once you've experienced life on the cloud, it's hard to remember how you got by all these years without it. For instance, do you think your 1980s self could ever imagine a time when you could live, work, and play in a virtual world? Yet, here we are in 2010 doing just that with Windows Live. Sure, there are some life-altering discoveries that haven't happened yet, like time travel, teleporting, or flying cars, but Windows Live is a good indication we're on the right track.

Take a look back at your past before the cloud...


Pre-cloud: Being part of the audio-visual club doesn't boost your popularity.

With the cloud: You can become an online media sensation by creating the next viral video hit using Movie Maker.

Pre-cloud: Only your mom thinks the robot you made is cool.

With the cloud: Collaborate with fellow brainiacs using Windows Live Mesh and Windows Live Messenger, to brainstorm something big. And, having access to the latest version of any files from any of your devices (and you have many!) will come in handy.

Pre-cloud: Only jocks have fans, friends, and followers.

With the cloud: Let your legions of fans - a.k.a., your social media contacts - know what you're up to with one-click photo uploads from Windows Live Photo Gallery. And, with Windows Live Messenger, you can discuss and debate that crazy TV show's season finale with people who actually care.
