Check out the video here:

I got it from a friend.  Maybe they only sent it to beta testers?

it looks like it allows you to make an application without the need
for a web/db server.  It then 'synthesizes' the code you created in
this thing and then turns it into pure html/javascript/ajax

i dunno seems cool, but not sure how well it scales.  depends on what
you are trying to do.  Plus this thing does not look intuitive at all.

*shudder*

Now that's just frightening. MS Access rewritten to run on top of
Javascript, and with Pascal replacing VB. I struggle to imagine a
more hideous frankensteining of technologies.
