    Called OnLive Desktop, this is an upcoming app that will let you use Windows and Office on practically any device, because there will be Android and Mac versions coming soon too!

    Cloud-gaming service OnLive will launch soon a new and interesting application, that will let you stream a cloud-based Windows version and the Office suite (Word, Excel and Power Point) on any iPad device.

    Called OnLive Desktop, the app will be available this week in North America, first for iPad users. But Android, PC, Mac and monitors/TV (via the OnLive microconsole) versions are coming soon too.

    They are also planning to launch a cloud-based web browser, with full flash support.

    A Standard service, with 2 GB of storage space on the cloud, will be availabe for free, while a "Pro" version with 50 GB of storage will be available for $9.99/month. Enterprise and collaborative services are planned.

      This is nothing new, there's an app called Splashtop remote desktop that's been out for awhile now that does the same thing. It streams video smooth and also has sound.

      When will they give up? I said 2 years ago this will fail and it has. I have it at home and it always lags and plays like crap. I try it out every few moths and it had never work right. (The game part of the system)

      Well, I don't live in USA, however I've tried a few free games and demos and it works pretty well for me on a 5Mbit connection.

      I mean, it surely lags and the stream quality drops sometimes, but games are completely playable.

      If this work so well right now (at least for me, and I'm far from their servers), I can't wait what they'll manage to do a couple years in future.
