How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

Can't get it to work. Better luck next time. Why do I have to use 15 words when the first 5 said it all?

5.0 out of 5 stars Orb is a great cloud system February 13, 2013
Verified Purchase
Orb was "the cloud" before any of these pushovers starting advertising it non-stop. Best one time fee to access your media files from home over the internet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works as advertised October 28, 2012

The Orb was easy to set up and it works as advertised. It will allow me to cancell one of my XM subscriptions so it will pay for its self in less than a year.
