Bluestacks for PC

This is too cool!
BlueStacks is a 30-person startup based in Silicon Valley. It took 10 engineers two years to build its proprietary "LayerCake" technology that allows over 400,000 popular mobile apps to run on Macs, PCs and Windows 8 tablets. The company's Mac and Windows software has been downloaded more than 5 million times worldwide. Free while in beta, it is available now at BlueStacks. This software received mostly negative to mixed reviews. Its latest version ( beta 1) received less than 2 out of 5 stars on CNET The top user complaints are the lag issue, especially when running graphic intensive apps and the fact that it doesn't provide a mechanism to uninstall cleanly. Ah it's beta and does offer updates so it will improve besides you can sync your Android phone to your PC (long live the PC) also Bluestacks has teamed up with Asus the motherboards of choice.  What's in your PC? now it's an Android, thanks, Google. This company not only helps in marketing but the morale that surrounds Google and companies that work with them is on a high and we're having fun damn it!     

On the other hand, some reviewers praised the concept and hinted that it has a lot of potentials.  I've installed this to my PC just to check it out, now for gaming, I'm not using it, have the PC for that but popular apps like weather, earthquakes, world news, business and other interactive sources the platform runs fine (pretty cool) for creating an Android applications on your PC.  Also when installing you can pick a free Anti Virus like AVG to surf the network this is advised and found no conflict with Microsoft Essentials.
