A Laptop, Its Head in the Cloud

A Laptop, Its Head in the Cloud, NYT article.

I tried valiantly to use the Samsung as my main machine, but by the end of a week, I was about ready to toss it like a Frisbee.

Pogue echoes what I've said myself here, and what Bert comment just below: the dream of cloud computing is a sweet one, but it does not fit in the current world where you can't trust the speed or even presence of an Internet connection, nor the servers. Maybe in twenty years that'll look very different, just maybe.
