    Anyway it's not gonna work offline just like any other cloud-synch 'magic'.
    But if you're online, those nice processes will do their work silently in the background. You won't be bothered at all, except for the (rarely displayed) ads.

    Hi there.

    Unlike a lot of people I come from a time where if a product was advertised on TV people thought what a junk product having to use such a low brow medium as TV to advertise the item. When I was a bit younger we didn't even HAVE TV one day of the week (Thursday's for some strange reason until 1986) -- also no proper Internet / mobiles back in those days either -- we actually had to COMMUNICATE with real people etc. Why is there no t.v. programs scheduled in Iceland on thursdays ?

    This isn't as idiotic as it sounds --I've seen many articles in the papers recently about some families trying a "Digital Free Day" once a week to try and reconnect again as Humans - how often when you go out into a restaurant these days do you see several people -- whether a family group or just a bunch of colleagues -- all fiddling around on their mobile phones and not actually speaking to each other !!!

    You never see Ferrari's or Mayerbach;s advertised on TV or even Gulf Stream Jets so there must be some truth in the low brow element of TV,


    I don't have too many objections to PASSIVE advertising but I avoid like the plague those which force me to complete an action before proceeding. (The London Underground / Tube for example would be a far worse place without the advertising on the escalator walls etc).

    Cheers

    Yup. Here in Miami tourists ride the Metro Mover because it's free. Homeless and poor people ride it for the same reason. The tourists usually insert their heads in their phones to ignore the undesirables, and everyone else, on the train. The funny thing is you often see people walking down the sidewalk talking to themselves. When you get closer you can tell which ones are crazy because they aren't wearing "hands free" phone gear. Sometimes I feel like saying to these phone people "please turn on the speaker phone. If I have to listen to you talk on the phone I might as well hear the whole conversation, not just your half."
