Engine Yard has created an infograph depicting how the growth of mobile is driving cloud computing and and vice versa.

Did you know that there are 3 billion more smartphones on earth than there are humans? Maybe that doesn't come as much of a surprise to you. But what you might find more surprising is that the growth in smartphone adoption has actually contributed to Engine Yard's success. That's right: as smartphone adoption has grown, so has app consumption. As a result, businesses are now prioritizing mobile application development. By 2015, mobile application development projects targeting smartphones and tablets will outnumber native PC projects by a ratio of 4 to 1. Innovation in mobile is imperative, and there's a need for tools that enable businesses to innovate quickly. Many cloud computing technologies–like Engine Yard's Platform as a Service–have enabled developers and businesses to focus on application innovation.

WTF is "Platform as a Service"? I mean, you couldn't invent a more meaningless name if you tried. Is that software on the cloud, cloud storage, or a smartphone that only works when connected to the cloud? Shit, I hate when business people invent tech terms designed to hide WTF they are.
