Definition: A software system designed to support interoperable machine-to-machine interaction over a network. Web services are frequently just Internet application programming interfaces (API) that can be accessed over a network, such as the Internet, and executed on a remote system hosting the requested services (As defined by Wikipedia).

What This Means: Web services are becoming more and more popular and ubiquitous; however, as a user, you may not even know that is what they are. The benefit to you is that your computer will function and share data with other systems faster and more transparently (and securely) than ever before.
