A world where all computers are managed as embedded os terminals for centralized services is a rather stagnant sounding place. I could see having a tablet at home that can be passed around with the home groupware interface loaded. For daily computing through, I won't be giving up my traditional machine.

So true, as far as centralized computing terminals go, this has it's place. Like the iPhone, it looks to deliver it's intended functions well enough. Now to see what unintended functions it can delivery.
