Anything that can increase the iPhone's market share and possibly subsequently the Mac's market share is a good thing in my eyes. On a side note, reading stories where the companies mentioned are written with their stock prices directly afterwards is distracting.

Citrix also tells me today that the documents are secure because with application virtualization, no data will be stored on the iPhone; it'll merely be accessible remotely on the iPhone and remain encrypted at the data center.

This seems to tie in with Jobs' original vision of all computer data being "in the cloud," accessible from anywhere on any device. Now if only the iPhone were able to print (via Bluetooth or WiFi) and also do a screen dump to the video out, it would handily begin replacing many business laptops.

(I can hear distant screams of, "What about copy-and-paste?")
