Cloud computing can mean whatever one want it to mean. It's supposedly cloud computing just so as long as whateveritis goes outside the company firewall. Go play the cloud-computing definition game and come up with the favorite definitions. But whatever the definition, cloud computing, still in its infancy, is game changing. Remember how the Internet affected the retail book industry that was slow to grasp an understanding of the non-secure, unreliable, poorly-governed Internet before it got Amazon-ed? Ditto for cloud computing.
