The problem with cloud computing is that your definition is right, but so are a dozen others. Cloud computing, to hear people talk of it, is also any web-based application, any application that stores files remotely instead of locally, and any mechanism that allows in any way for the client to become irrelevant. More properly your definition is correct, it's clustering and virtual machines at a massive scale, it's software as a service, it's MULTICS all over again! In the end it's a useless buzz word without a proper meaning. HTML5 is almost as bad because it's used the same way, but at least it does have a proper meaning.
