  1. I had a look at the demo and the posted video. The problem as I see it is that the theory and the practice don’t match. Instead of running applications “in the browser” they run them in panels that pop up on the right hand side of the browser. That “sucks” (sorry but in computing parlance this is a valid terminus technicus”). Google apps don’t need a panel. They run in the browser. So why “Notepad”? And why do you need “notepad”? If you redesign from scratch you don’t need to port existing applications into the browser, you redesign them from scratch to fit *into* the browser. I sense another sad case of “digital incunabula” here, or rather “web incunabula” – failure to appreciate that the web medium is a truly different from the desktop medium. And it is even worse when Google, Mr, fails to appreciate that.
