Is Astoria (ADO.NET Data Services) going to be the answer to cloud computer?

I think there is a lot of confusion in developer community as to where is Microsoft going with Astoria, Silverlight, SQL Server Data Services and Entity Framework.  I just read an article on VS Magazine titled Manipulate Data in the Cloud with ADO.NET. After reading I realized that article simply covers Data Services and REST implementation etc but doesn’t really show anything remotely related to cloud. I guess the author forgot the cloud in a cloud 🙂

Don’t get me wrong I liked the article but don’t agree with the title.  Sometimes I feel I am the only one pulling my hair looking at some of the new stuff being thrown in by Microsoft.  I think my dream of being able to create applications by just thinking about them isn’t going to be a reality anytime soon.
