Megatrends, eReaders and cloud computing: Category is “common bonds”

One of my favorite television shows is Jeopardy!  For those of you not familiar with the game show, it works like this:  Three contestants are given an “answer” and must formulate their response in the form of a question.  The answers are grouped in categories.  One frequently used category is called “Common Bonds.”  In this category contestants are given a list of three items and they need to come up with what each item has in common with the others.
