    A start-up company called "BlueStacks", is developing an x86 runtime environment within Windows that will allow the use of Android apps along-side Windows apps. To be clear, this is not an emulator, but is an actual way to run Android apps directly within the Microsoft Windows system. the software technology has impressed investors enough that they have sunk $7.6 Million into BlueStacks to get the technology going. Here are a couple of quotes from the arstechnica.com article,
    The article also indicated,
    Right now the company is developing partnerships with hardware companies to generate interest in shipping the BlueStacks Android runtime with their products. They plan to demonstrate the technology at Computex, and intend to have a downloadable working alpha version in June or July.

    This would be pretty impressive, if it actually works as advertised. There are a ton of ways that utilizing and synchronizing Android apps directly with your home or work PC could be useful. What do you guys think?

    Yes, neat idea. I have some widgets I'd love to run on the PC (yes, I could probably find many I just don't feel like searching when I already search for Android and IOS apps).

    Curious as to how this will work, given that the apps are designed to work with a touchscreen. I'd assume a mouse click can substitute.
