People are consuming more content on mobile year on year, and using offline storage and capabilities have been around for the past year or two; how this is only just bubbling at the surface at conferences is beyond me.

Take THE white elephant example; Facebook mobile. The shift is evident, my girlfriend doesn't use a traditional desktop/laptop anymore she consumes all her Facebook glutton through her mobile. If it takes more than 5 seconds to load she gives up.

There is a grey gap in knowledge of accepted and logical practice with what stays online or offline but for example the whole of Facebook's UI could be cached on a mobile and just reload the updated news/feeds.

I stopped using the facebook GUI after they changed the adress books of millions of iOS users. I assumed this trend would continue. Granted, now I just don't look at FB at all so maybe you're right.
