If any of you have been following developments with Apollo for example the Ebay "San Dimas" client app. put out by Effective UI, you have seen the bridge built between a rich/thick client and web application.
If you're asking yourself, what is it really or I really don't get what all the hype is about, I just stumbled across this google video with Mike Chambers interviewing Christian Cantrell, and after watching the video I could only come up with the extra two words in the title. This product truly is "Friggin' Impressive".
Take 13 minutes and watch the video.
