Can anyone explain the difference between Infrastructure as a Service vs Platform as a Service?

I've read many definitions but I still don't have a solid grasp on the differences. Software as a Service is easy because I can visualize Gmail, Dropbox, etc.

Can anyone provide me with clear definitions of IaaS and PaaS and examples of each? When I was searching there were websites that listed Azure and AWS down for both .. which is not helpful lol

Thank you!
