Continuity isn't a monolithic feature of the new operating systems so much as it is a range of features, each with its own hardware requirements and mode of operation. As we already did for iOS 8's Extensions, in this article we'll be using Apple's developer documentation, WWDC videos, and early reports from forums and rumor sites to explain the technology behind these features. We'll speak in brief about how phone integration and AirDrop work. Then, we'll examine how Handoff works and how developers can integrate Handoff support into their own iOS and OS X applications.

Ars takes a look at Apple's Continuity.

I would agree with a lot of what you say. I think eventually Android will be just as seamless, but I agree it doesn't need to be pointed out in an article about Apple technologies.

I think it is worth pointing out that Google does allow you to export data dumps from a number of their services quite easily though - think it is quite a new thing though and I haven't tried it.

I think it is because Apple is really boring. What is there to say? They have a new feature and it works... It is easy to use and you don't have to configure anything. That is nice but what is there to talk about?
