Yep -- I think this is very promising
technology. The end result will be to
divorce one's data from the various
computing devices (phone, PDA, laptop)
to which it is now tied. Instead, your
data will be replicated automatically
across geographically dispersed stores,
some of which might be virtual stores
provided by a service provider. All
your computing devices will cache
whatever data is appropriate for its
applications, synchronizing with your
stores when possible. Of course, one
of your stores will be a personal
server, of the sort that Intel is
developing, so that you can take it
with you on trips, to solve the
latency and disconnection problem.

Your data is no longer balkanized, and
you no longer have to manage where it
resides. At least, that's the dream.
In the meantime, I need to backup my
laptop. :-(
