It's a fine product, except for the lock in.

when hbase matures it will be good for appengine as well, as I think 
alot of people will wait for an alternative to move to, and host 
internally if/when they get larger. when they see they have an 
alternative they will flock to both.

the lack of java support will mean it is confined to the geeks. they 
need to get it into java and PHP for it to become mainstream.

the lack of cron/scheduling support is a pita as well.
