Hang on a minute
While in general I don't like the cloudification of things, I would say that this article is only slightly removed from the simplest form of journalism, which would see cloud and immediately "spot" a trend that will result in everything going into the cloud.
This article is at best one step better, and has spotted cloud not working due to a technical failure, and predicted the demise of everything cloudy.
I'd say stop "predicting" eternal trends, even though it's easy money, and instead say that probably some more stuff will shift to the cloud, but not everything, unless we invent something that completely changes things. That's rather more likely.
For example: logging in to use local Photoshop - probably not a good idea; it should be the same or give a slightly degraded service if some stuff requires the cloud.
But, logging in to access a cloud-rendered Revit 3D view - probably always going to be necessary unless local computing power catches up.
