Try explaining how the cloud works to your 88 year old grandmother.

Go on.
It's a library filled with just your books.

You sit at your desk. The porter fetches and removes books for you. They're yours, though, so you can do what you will with them, before they get shipped back out.

Yes, they do (outside of the mobile space), but that's not important to explaining the core concept of cloud storage to an 84 year old.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

I don't even know what you mean by "the core concept of cloud storage."

There's stuff to store. You either (1) don't have room for it, or (2) you need the same stuff, even though you're not "home."

It's just public storage with delivery. That's it. You can probably even skip the library analogy.
