Yes, I saw this in the tech lab. Like Brian Madden, I could not believe my eyes - this is a complete rip-off of Softricity - except they're using AIE, which means software is still getting installed. Also, as Brian describes, this really isn't streaming - it's just file transfer. So, nice idea but I certainly won't have my customers use it. It's not going to scale.
