Specialized processors might reignite performance scaling, but they’ll also change the nature of computing forever

The advent of cloud computing could restart system performance scaling -- but that scaling won't be delivered the way it used to be. Instead of continuously more-powerful devices, we may use relatively static hardware to connect to consistently more powerful cloud compute services.
