maybe a side comment...but I think there are lost of applications where NETBOOKS are better and are WAY BETTER.
I do not believe Netbooks in some places are playing a catchup. For some uses they are just BETTER.
I think Intel should be SUPPORTING and promoting apps that UNIQUELY emphasize the ADVANTAGES of Netbooks(hence AppUp)
over the iPhone counterparts(AppStore). Not necessarily mindless porting efforts of everything.
I think we should look for those uses where AppUp Netbook space can be BETTER, where iPhone apps are just clumsy, unnatural and
inconvenient. On netbooks those apps will typically ROCK!


iPhone has an app called everyday-app that takes pictures of you every day and allows to build a movie.
We believe APhotoADay app in Intel AppUp uniquely shows off that NETBOOKS due to the inherent stability of the
positioning of the webcam and lack of typical for phone-like handheld devices hand shake movements,
is a much better application for this type of media use. Such product AMPLIFIES the use and SUPERIOR
usability of netbooks vs phones for this real world media application. iPhone everyday-app we believe CANNOT MATCH
APhotoADay in its usability, convenience and elegance that leverages the stable netbook webcam.

Simply put, some apps are just BETTER for netbooks than for iPhone :-)
