This notion of "pervasive application" makes a lot of sense and is very compelling.

I find it interesting that you call it "application" when in the description you refer to data and content. I believe in the Mac world, they like to create a document-centric user model vs. an application-centric model, which companies like Microsoft seem to favor. For example, Mac calls their media center iTunes while MS calls it a Media Player.

I'm starting to think that it doesn't matter much and am more inclined to go with the app-centric model. For example, I can wash my dishes with my camera. The tool/app name implies what you can do with it.

So, "pervasive application" works for me :)

Nicely written BTW!

Oops! I meant "I *cannot* wash my dishes with my camera"...
