Are Web Apps and Services Heading to Extinction?

Are Web apps and services heading to extinction? Mobile applications can embed common web functionality and interfaces--or--within commonly used apps, such as e-mail?

Specifically, web-based apps like Twitter have new competition in apps, which integrate micro-blogging directly into your e-mail.

Another example would be the many web-based calendar and event services. These independent web apps have their own interfaces.

Apple TV Is Well Executed

Yes, I bought an Apple TV the day it was announced. It's installed and operational. The packaging is consistent with Apple's nice design, set-up is simple, menu and navigation straight-forward, and viewing/listening is a great experience. Watching 320x240 formatted video on a large-screen, HDTV set is surprisingly satisfying. There is a lot of syncing to do, via ethernet cable and/or Airport wirless connection. In fact, I just ordered an Airport extreme for wireless access to the AppleTV, but I wired via ethernet for the moment.
