sounds cool, but it's so much press speak that I'm not sure what to believe until it actually goes into real world action.

Since you can't stream 1080p reliably over wireless connections, I'm not sure how well this would work. And wouldn't it suck up a large portion of your bandwidth / cap just like Netflix?

Big companies who deplay bandwidth intensive products get a very reasonable rate on bandwith compared to the artificial caps put on most consumer plans... it's only really the consumer who has to worry about bandwidth and streaming quality from what I can tell.

By consumer you mean the guy playing the game and paying for the service from Onlive and the like. It's still an issue.

I don't get it?! Maybe it's because I'm French Canadian (Lol) but basically what are they saying... That Nvidia will have super gaming computers and that we will be able to stream from them?

Sounds a bit like the old "on-demand" playstation system hotels use (or used to anyway)
