Perhaps just poor writing on my part.  I'm not questioning whether web 
pages exist or are useful.  Of course they are.

As I think about this more, there seem to be two question here:

- What are the use-cases where a native app is a better choice
   than a web app?

- What are the perceived benefits of web apps and native apps?

The first question is about actual capabilities, and the second is about 
the psychological drivers of clients and customers, which may or may not 
reflect those capabilities.
