Believe it or not, I really seldom pay much attention to who is posting what, I just respond (about the only time I notice is if I look to see if there's a consistent negative).

They assured me then that changes were coming. Some have, but I wish there were more, and they were coming faster.
Imagine how cool it would be if I could log into my profile, and select which apps I wanted on which device? Or when HP gets their music/video solution online, which of those files I wanted on which device.
I could select databases to merge, or select one device to be the "parent", and the information on it to overwrite the other device(s).
As HP adds WebOS to other more utilitarian devices, I could log into my profile, and program to change the temperature on my WebOS enabled themostat. Turn my WebOS enabled television on and off at certain times when I'm not at home to make it appear I am (and to irritate our Boston Terrier and Cockatoo).
Most of these are things I suggested in the past to Palm. Now that there's some money backing things up, maybe we'll see the potential realized.
And yeah, synchronization between devices would be a good one. I don't think Palm (making phones at the time) really thought much about that one.
