Game clouding,  the video is steamed over the net to your pc...

What about multiple windows (or linux or any other os for that matter) sessions and the video stream is delivered over wifi to any wifi enabled device (phone, tablet, etc), so unlike vnc which controls windows... an app that simply streams a virtual windows session to that mobile device over wifi...

How's the idea sound?

There are several companies doing this, notably: Steam In-Home Streaming, OnLive, the Linux Terminal Server Project (thin-client environment), and NoMachine.

NoMachine actually uses very little bandwidth. Less than 1mbps.

Even still, in Australia, if you can't get land line broadband, and require wifi, you'll be paying hundreds of dollars a year to simply use your machine.

Don't use mobile data, use a proper WISP. Also, NoMachine works at rates as low as 20kbps comfortably, less than an old 28.8kbps modem. You can go as low as 8kbps, but you will see lag.

There seems to be an above-average number of tech enthusiasts from Australia.  Of all places.  I mean, why not?, but apparently you guys have been quietly building a legion of techies that are set to out-pace the US.  That or we're just getting dumber, which is entirely plausible.

Not to speak of all the competition in countries driven to pull themselves out of poverty.

Don't even get me started on that. The U.S is an overweight, washed-out, former professional athlete that can't let go of "the glory days" when it comes to science and innovation. For a while we were able to collect some scraps from the huge military industrial complex, but now we can't even make innovative weapons.

You definitely want to check for any WISPs in your area though. www.goubiquiti.com is a good place to start.
