Gamers now have their own cloud.

Valve, a Bellevue, Washington based entertainment software and technology company, recently announced that they will use the cloud computing paradigm as their next major update. Called "Steam Cloud" the service will allow gamers to store not only their profiles and key bindings online, but also all of their savegames created through Steamworks-supported applications.
Steam has had 114 client updates since their launch in 2003, but the biggest one is yet to come. Steam Cloud is Valve’s plan to further engage PC gamers with their games, and this is one more step to Steam becoming the core of the PC gaming experience.
