Brittany Yanos is a student at the University of Michigan and has been an author since January 9, 2014. The scope of this source is the top five benefits of cloud computing; the ability to access content anywhere, never losing data, pay for what you need, ability to cut down on network expenses, and being able to downsize when necessary. A limitation is that it doesn't state the drawbacks of choosing cloud computing, if there is any. This source fits in with my research as it further hardens the benefit of choosing cloud computing over on-site storage.

Un claro ejemplo de cómo la biotecnología aporta avances útiles en la medicina. La impresión en 3D de órganos puede significar una gran mejoría en el mundo de los trasplantes, ya que se disminuirían los rechazos. Soy consciente de que todavía estamos muy lejos de poder "crear" órganos que puedan ser usados en un cuerpo humano, pero claramente éste es un primer paso.

Education is one area in which I think would be benefited greatly by Virtual Reality technology. This Scoop talks about using VR to simulate field trips for school children. As these trips can be quite expensive, VR would allow the children to go anywhere in the world for a fraction of the price.
