Death of the Computer?

Here's an interesting article on Business 2.0 that is only interesting because it's completely wrong. Unfortunately, a writer was inspired to pontificate that computers are going to be replaced by dumb internet clients just because google can replace his calculator.

This guy is obviously a power user. I don’t think he has any idea what it takes to port desktop applications to the web. What about graphics intensive items, like games? I think he got it backwards, the PC isn’t dying – it’s being reborn in new forms. I think he’s missing the big picture, which is: My cable box. It has more memory, more hard drive space, and more processing power than my PC of four years ago. He thinks more things are replacing the PC, I say more things are becoming a PC. Sorry for the rant.
