This is an interesting David Pogue post predicting that as more and more data moves to the cloud, more and more ISPs (including home ones) are going to cap data.
I predict that as the cloud becomes less economically feasible due to these kinds of fees, the ability to save work and data locally will become a feature.
We moved from the mainframe-terminal model (which is kind of a cloud metaphor), to local, independent machines. Now, we’re back to the cloud.
Eventually, we’ll return to local computing. So don’t delete all of those local files quite yet.
