Does Citrix and similar systems count as cloud? Because if so, lots and lots of businesses are already cloud...

And servers are pretty good at 24/7 99% uptime, it kindof what they are made for.

4. Laptops
Even though laptops are smaller than ever, smartphones and tablets like Apple's iPad are nearly as powerful and functional as a traditional laptop computer. These other devices are infinitely more slick to carry and use—especially with the use of peripherals like Bluetooth keyboards—and they’re starting to make laptop computers look like technological dinosaurs.
No...Laptops have uses, for one, they have a physical keyboard which is just plain better to type on, they also can do more in terms of software and generally are faster too.
Tablets and Smartphones have their uses but at the end of the day, the laptop is still damn useful.

5. Anything Wired
Remember when your keyboard, computer mouse, and headphones all had to attach to something else in order to work? With more and more gadgets working via Bluetooth and WiFi, the age of wired devices is on its way out.
Nah, it's not, I'm yet to see anyone using Bluetooth headphones around me and everyone I know who has a wireless mouse bar one or two are waiting for it to die so they can get a wired one and don't have to worry about batteries.

6. Hard Drives
As cloud computing and cloud storage catches on, the necessity for individuals to own hard drives capable of holding hundreds of gigabytes of data will be dramatically reduced. The biggest advantage to cloud computing is the ability to access your data via the Internet from any computer or smartphone anywhere in the world, which makes it very appealing.
Everyone I talk to about Cloud computing says they'd rather have their files on their computer and not on someone elses, they'd rather just put the files they want on the SD Card at home...The only way I really see it working is if it makes it extremely easy to have one actual computer in a house that stores everything and shares it over the net to devices and people you want it shared to, not someone elses server that's probably in a different country and that you have no idea whether they'll look at your files or not.

Fail article is fail....

DVD not going anywhere for the time being, other than maybe high capacity disks for cheap.

Alarm clocks are the only things on here I could possibly see being phased out. Even so, no phone is going to give that horrid blaring sound of a cheap alarm clock lol.

Point and shoot cameras. Maybe, but more than likely no, no, and no. Especially when any phone with a decent camera requires a data plan, that many people won't pay for because of the camera.

Laptops. Absolutely not. A $500 laptop has far more power inside it than an ipad, even more so when you get to the more upgraded ipads.

Anything wired. No. simple as that.

Hard Drives. Only way I see this happening is if SSDs become vastly cheaper and larger in capacity. I wouldn't even want to touch cloud computing for any business work or much of anything for that matter, no internet access = no computer.

You'll all find that quite a few of yahoo's articles (like these ones at least) tend to be completely full of fail and ridiculous statements. Should have seen their top 10 games of 2010 list....GEEZUS

every server HAS to go down at some point, be it for upgrades or hardware failure, businesses that operate at any extent on weekends will lose that downtime in either event, and will suffer a great loss in the event of hardware failure during the workweek which is not impossible by any means

like I said, 20min of total downtime is 20min too long and it certainly doesnt take less than that to make an upgrade or fix burned out SSDs/controllers

if the server goes down, people get paid to sit there and hang out. not exactly good for any businesses bottom line. cloud will never happen.

Read this earlier at home, and saw the comments section.

Yip, Yahoo strikes again. Sheesh

I wouldn't be concerned if something along the lines of the following were done.

Store all files to the cloud via AES-256 encryption with the client's secret key (not stored).
The filenames themselves could be obfuscated by:
a) hashing(filename+secret key)
b) assigning it a pseudo-random name
then associate them (key, value pair) with their AES-256 encrypted counterpart stored in the cloud's db.
The client would see their clear-text filenames and have access to their files as per normal (decrypted on the fly); meanwhile anyone else locally or otherwise would see nothing but unidentifiable data.

Probably true for most of them, just not in the time frame they are predicting. Alarm Clocks and (entry level)Cameras I can see declining extremely fast and phased out to almost nil within ~5 years maybe, but the rest will probably take much longer.

No comment on notebooks, I don't use one and know pretty much nothing about that segment. Wireless things are becoming more and more prominent but will not be taking over anytime soon, if ever. I much prefer a wired mouse/KB over wireless, especially for gaming due to latency issues and I think this goes for almost anything wireless.(not counting the battery issues). DVD's and Blue-Ray may go the way of the dodo but only in lieu of some higher capacity medium. Personal storage mediums aren't going anywhere for a long time. Although Cloud will inevitably grow in popularity whether we like it or not, the masses don't care where their data is stored unfortunately, as long as they have access to it and it is fairly quick. This doesn't mean that HDD's are going anywhere though. SSD's will never take the place of HDD's and far as I know, they were not intended to. There is always going to be a need for larger capacity drives that are affordable. No matter how big and cheap SSD's become, mechanical drives will be bigger and cheaper. Also, what do you think the cloud servers will be storing all that data on?
