Rating inflation versus brain inflation

I've always subscribed to the theory that the FIDE Ratings System is inflationary, and that is why we have so many 2700+ players at the top of the list. However a new study, referred to in this Forbes article, claims that computers have made the top players better, and this is the reason for the rating increase in the top players.
As with everything, read it yourself to draw your own conclusions.
