The whole "put your eggs in one basket" argument is not really relevant when it comes to computing.

Current usage of computers could also be viewed as unreliable considering how many new potential sources of problems are created by using computers. E.g. When moving to digital format, it's a lot easier to steal info. It's a trade off between complexity and productivity/flexibility.

It's just a matter of time before web enabled applications become the norm. We have to wait till the infrastructure and ecosystem catches up to these new web-based application systems.
