    Like in the good old days: web services

    IEEE Spectrum, the engineer's magazine, has just published an article on webservices. Let me be clear on this: I really love web services. But when you read something like this:
    Older mainframes get a new lease on life

    You can't help but cringe with fear a bit. It's back to the good old days, when you could only "rent" "services" from companies, and you were locked for life with them.
    In some cases, it might be a good idea to outsource computing, and let a far-off computing center handle your number-crunching, spam-swatting, or bankroll-adjusting. But if software-as-product becomes software-as-service, we will all suffer. Although it seems everybody is going in that direction.
