Thanks Satoru for the reminder of this really nice article and 
perspective re the Web and apps!

_IF_ this group considered `apps suck` as axiomatic and prohibited the 
use of `mobile`, perhaps all of the [not particularly useful, IMHO ;-)] 
discussions like "so, what does mobile mean", and "what is a mobile 
`device`", etc. would be irrelevant and the group could then focus on 
technology gaps to advance the Web `at large`. Otherwise, it seems like 
this group is mostly a marketing arm for SysApps and the apps that group 
is trying to enable.

-Cheers, AB
