What is Cloud computing and how is it different than SaS?

Now a days we keep hearing about Cloud computing, from Ads all over the News papers about it to etc.
My question is what is Cloud computing and how is it different than Application Service Provides (ASP) or Software as a Service (SAS) that was all the rage and buzz in the Dot com 2000 to 2002 era?

Tech_Guru has nailed it on the head. That is Cloud computing is nothing more than Software As Service that was all the Vogue at the height of the Dot com bauble.

There is NO difference between Cloud computing and the "Application Service Provides (ASP) or Software as a Service (SAS) that was all the rage and buzz in the Dot com 2000 to 2002 era".

It is just a new term for the VC Wall Street crowd to fund a bunch of same companies as early 2000s SaS companies such as Webex, under this new fangeled term of Cloud computing, so that they can have new IPOs using this new fangeled term of Cloud computing as if it is any different than the "Software as a Service (SAS) that was all the rage and buzz in the Dot com 2000 to 2002 era".

In fact Cloud computing, means really the World Wide Web, unless the web page that you are reading is a static Web page, so for example your Web based email such as Hotmail is an example of Cloud computing.

Hum! Really! Thank you for clarifying that. And to think that companies such as Oracle, IBM, etc. running full page Ads on Wall Street Journal, etc. touting their "New Cloud Computing" solution and as I thought it is nothing new at all! But the same (old) SaS of late 90s and early 2000s.
