Windows "Imagine a phone that could run real Remote Desktop. Real PowerShell. Anything that can run on your desktop PC. Imagine 'phablet' form factors, similar to today's Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which could dock to a desktop setup and utilize an external display, keyboard, mouse, and other peripherals. Imagine a single set of APIs that work everywhere. Imagine that Phone isn't a whole separate platform, but an app. An app that runs on Windows. Real Windows. The Windows Phone team could never make that happen. But the Windows client team? You betcha. Make it happen, Microsoft. It's time to take the phone seriously." I have never agreed with Thurrot as much as I do right now.

It makes more sense to have your data the cloud (I really dislike that term)

I often propose a slight modification of the terminology: "fog" ;)

Fog would be a better term.

I dislike the term "cloud", because it kind of suggest you don't know where your data is and it magicaly finds your device. But the data is on a server that's connected to the Internet and it already was before it all became the "cloud".
