Cloud Computing- Google's own Laptop

I just have a question. In this article it talks about how having nothing but a browser on your computer will lead to a much easier job for IT to protect against hacking. I don't know much on the subject, but wouldn't this be rather untrue? A commercial user must still store his or her files somewhere, wouldn't it just change the way hacking is done? Just looking for some insight :)

Basically, they will have to worry about network sniffers. Google takes care of nearly everything else, including storage.
The glass is neither half-full nor half-empty; it's merely twice as big as it needs to be.

Yes, but the question "who will protect against Google" still remains unanswered.
My opinion is that cloud computing is a very wrong direction, because it takes the power from the user (which got there when the first affordable personal computers got onto market), back to the corporations. I don't want to own just a dummy terminal, being able to do nothing with it.
