+1, and have them check the Nintendo guy too. You know, the guy that insists there's no demand for HD output on the Wii.

We may have an epidemic on our hands...

what happens if you want to work in a place that DOESN'T have Internet - for example you might be using a computer on the High Speed Eurostar Rail link between London and Brussels / Paris and you are temporarily delayed while the train is in the Channel Tunnel.

Or for all sorts of reasons the Internet service could be down , your router is broken etc etc.
It depends how the entire system works.

Perfect Cloud

Hypothetically, fast forward to a time where cloud based technology and usage is common place. And for the sake of conjecture, lets assume that coverage is global without any deadspots and there is never any down time etc. (magic hardware)

By that time ISP's, plans, ways we access the internet, would have changed and evolved to suit the needs. Accessing the net would be as simple as using your mobile phone. No matter where you are, you'd simply connect to the nearest tower/node/whatever.

In this idealistic scenario, it would not matter where you are - your device would never be disconnected and you would not be interrupted.

However that scenario is idealistic and therefore unrealistic as we live in a fallible world.

Realistic Cloud

Again lets assume that cloud technology is commonplace and that it works in the idealist cloud, but with the inevitable flaws like deadspots, broken hardware, disconnections etc.

Since there can never be a 100% guarantee that you will never be disconnected from the cloud, then feasibly some sort of limited offline / local capacity will exist. Just like the workings of the cloud, the extent of offline capability can only be speculated.

It could be as limited as saving a copy of a document you were working on with no ability to work with it until you are connected again, or perhaps a limited ability to work with a locally stored 'skeleton' app to tide you over until you can connect again.

In this scenario, it is assumed that access coverage is far superior than what exists today and that we will learn to live with these temporary 'inconveniences'.It would not be too dissimilar to today, where you are unable to use your mobile, or you are in a wi-fi deadspot.

However, it's not inconceivable to envision a much wider coverage than is enjoyed today. If the market demands it, the coverage will come.

20 years ago, having a phone glued to your ear or being able to use your laptop to connect to the internet without wires seemed to be the stuff of fantasy. Now it's commonplace.

Fast forward 20-30 years, and the idea of using a bulky desktop PC with a bloated full individual Operating System will seem archaic, quaint and possibly a little ludicrous. Just as we think of the computers of yesteryear that took an entire floor/building to process what can now be done on a phone.

The bottom line is, how we use computers is continuing to change and evolve, as it always has. This is just potentially the next step.

However, the direction and mechanics of that next step is at this stage, still very much steeped in speculation and conjecture.

Virtually New to Virtualization
Is it possible or even reasonable to start a virtual disk with Win 7 as the OS and install a game on it? I don't like the game installed on my regular everyday OS. Maybe the answer is a dual boot system. I am just kickin' it around.
