Moore Law, through the looking glass
The price of cloud services should drop at the rate of decrease in the price of hardware, Google says. What's kept it from offering such pricing until now? In fact, the cloud is a system and system prices don't follow Moore's Law for component prices. But, hey, I'm not arguing against lower prices. Go, Google.

Wealth of Nations' invisible hand
Yes, for those not schooled in the dark arts of economics, that's Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations "invisible hand" of the marketplace in 1776, working its magic on prices.

Re: Moore Law, through the looking glass
Along with healthy competition, isn't this just hedging bets on dependance and volume in the cloud? Good debate on this same topic on the "Structure" podcast the other day. Really curious is the cost savings/cutting will still benefit smaller business a few years from now, or if it's just a lousy lock-in to come.
