The Big Mobile and Desktop Platform Merge Is Underway
According to GiGaOm’s Kevin Tofel, tens of thousands of compelling mobile software titles have been created and some of them are actually good enough to displace their desktop or web counterparts.

- Android on Windows, for instance Dell
- Controlling PC’s from mobile, like Log Me IN
- Mobile and desktop display sharing (Tofel’s own little gadgetry)
