Editorial Wishful thinking? Yes, but let's consider the possibilities. The last couple years have seen significant advances in hardware production and design. One of the more interesting (and potentially revolutionary) developments to take place this past year is the announcement of a new CPU, the STI (Sony, Toshiba, IBM) Cell processor.

Lack of speed will kill the concept

Gmail is way faster than regular webmails, still, having to establish communication back and forth with the server using xmlHttpRequest takes too much time. Using an E-Mail client is instantaneous and faster.

The increase in speed (1GBps several years from new?) will improve it, but I don't imagine retouch a 50MB photo over a network between Mountain View and the other side of the Earth. Having Photoshop on a high-end workstation will still be faster.
