That set up sounds like something that came right out of Larry Ellison's mouth talking about super terminals for home and biz. As for the plan, someone is looking through rose colored glasses. Sounds good in theory till you get into the real world. They will have to pry away my free standing computer from my dying arms before I would let someone take over all my information.
