A new twist on databases?

I've been waiting for this to happen, I just expected it to come from Google rather than a startup. But here it is, hosted databases similar to what we're seeing come out of Google and Microsoft for their respective documents/spreadsheet apps online.

I've just started playing around with it, I'll post more as I come to conclusions.

First reactions:

-great concept

-offline access/synchronization is a big need

-security will be an interesting issue...databases generally hold more important information than just term papers
