Enjoyed your piece. I agree. The future is hybrid, based on local needs of the users. The tablet is becoming a very useful device for people on the move, especially for explaining something or inputting something simple. But trying to write a Powerpoint or do work on a spreadsheet on a tablet is a very expensive way to set up a business.

I think the same arguments apply to cloud computing. For some places it's brilliant. But for areas with frequent power outages and very expensive bandwidth, it's going to be decades before it makes economic sense.

For nearly 20 years, I’ve been blogging at two sites: Amy Wohl’s Opinions and Amy Wohl’s Opinions on SaaS and Cloud Computing. I’ve consolidated all my blogging onto one site here, where I’ll continue to blog on Cloud Computing and SaaS, as well as all my interests related to bringing new technology to market.
