I would say it has to run its course. It will more easily topple when we
need to have fiber and 5(6,7,8) G everywhere. Then the "internet of things"
will be "more real", IP V6 will more "more real". Clouds wont be big data
centers in another state next to a big dam owned by google or apple, but
hardware and software that seamlessly couples. Until we have a true "cloud"
with distributed processing, storage, and routing we will by bound to  the
walmart of computing we have now.
