    cloud might not be the right word, but any information stored online can be kept online permanently, even after you delete the information. we might not have called it the cloud back in 1996, but even info you put up (and deleted) back then can still be found, with the right resources.

    OK, but from the user point of view, what is visible in the 'cloud' should be as they intended, not some sort of amalgam of deleted stuff, and missing data.

    Ok, here's a question. How do I update the contacts in People (i.e. Windows Live) with my 'real' contacts, i.e. those that are in Apple iCloud?

    I guess no-one knows the answer to that one.
    Does anyone have activity on the People tile? I have nothing at all.

    I don't either. I guess it doesn't support it.

    That was a different app which seems to have gone missing from CP.
