Oracle and SUN Yesterday (today if you're in the US), Sun released the latest version of its virtualisation solution, VirtualBox 3.1. Among speed improvements and other smaller features, the biggest news is that Virtualox 3.1 introduces something called teleportation: you can move running VMs between machines - servers or clients, different architectures, different host operating systems, it doesn't matter to VirtualBox. Coincidentally, this reminded me of an idea I once had about moving running applications between machines.

Your vision of the future got me thinking...
Moving applications would be cool but what about copy-paste?
If instead of moving an entire application from pc to laptop/smartphone, i would really like to see copy-paste to work between devices.

Automagically send the clipboard via bluetooth or something to my devices. My phone could function as the clipboard server...
