Yup; just another mobile development, I think in general society will soon have a family or house hub that links into every other network it's inhabitants use and interlink back into it for an at all times availability anywhere on anything through multiple points. I know it is close to it now but the wrap around container for a general user is still being worked on. I think Windows 8 in a way, and even though I do not really like it, is moving into that really, I do think if it's M$ it will be next version at the least though.
