I agree. I also think he is addressing the 'consumer' environment. As 
soon as Chrome OS works on netbooks people in stores will be convinced 
that it is the latest 'cool thing' to buy, unaware of what exactly 
'cloud' means.
I also agree that 'cloud computing' is much of a buzz word, it's not so 
different from the once-upon-a-time systems with client-server model no? 
Once you store your data on the server, you have to trust the server 
owner that the data is secure (in all meanings)

That said as an audio user having an actual machine I can control and 
with enough hardware 'capabilities' is still a need I personally have 
and will have for many years.
