Windows CE !!! :lol:


Meanwhile Apple actually got that right with iOS and iCloud syncing - everything (if you wish) can be the same across all devices, including many of the equivalent Apple macOS apps (Calendar, Mail, Notes, Numbers, Photos, Safari browser tabs, keychain/passwords etc)

MS are going there with syncing the Live account since Windows 8.1
Android will also handle that assuming you have your Google account sync enabled and move between compatible phones

I went from a huawei running 4.4 to a huawei running 5.1. yes Google sync'd my contacts across, but i'm talking wallpaper, custom ringtones, alarms, apps. Also despite being nearly identical in hight, width and thickness the new one has slightly squarer corners which means it won't fit into my old wallet which I hadn't anticipated. I'm all for improvements, but not all change is beneficial, and some is completely pointless.

Imagine the wide-ranging chaos resulting from a teleporter / teleportal?

You mean aside from the ethical issues over dismantling someone, atom by atom and then reassembling them at the other end -- or worse... dismantling them and then rebuilding them from the description obtained during the dismantling process?

I was more thinking about the value of airline shares.
