The new MacBook Air needs the cloud

With the latest release of the new MacBook Air (and the small internal solid-state drive), we get yet another tipoff that cloud storage and online apps are the future of personal and eventually business computing. But who is going to be the cloud hard drive for everyone’s mobile device/laptop? Can any one player do it all (MobileMe, SharePoint, Google Docs, Box.net, etc.) or will it decentralization based on specific workflows and user needs. Will you keep all your images in Flickr, your business files in Google Docs, your project management assets in Basecamp, etc. I’m betting on the later. I can’t imagine that any one player will be able to give us all the value-added of a company focused on a single workflow or problem.
