    <p>I am amazed that MS took so long to make this first step. </p><p><br></p><p>If Microsoft starts to implement features that take the unique features of the Android Phone (mobile computing) and a Windows PC and make them work together really well from the web, to local, to personal networks, not just the Cloud, it can disrupt Apple business in a very deep and ample way. For witch Android only call and SMS relay is just one example. Another would be extending the UWP to Android. Another the cross device parental controls. Another device locations, copy and paste ….</p><p><br></p><p>If I relied on Windows for my desktop and laptop computing with these kinds of features in place working really well, buying an iPhone or iPad would make a lot, I mean a lot less sense … almost none (unless MS drops the ball in robustness with is most likely what will happen … as usual).</p><p><br></p><p>The funny thing is that it is not even that MS trying to disrupt Apple mobile business. Now an !"Android W OS! where all is baked, requiring from the start up no out of band configuration apart from a Windows Live account to get this done would be key, <span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">These kinds of integrations are impossible with iOS and WIndows due to Apple's own restrictions. They could not even if they tried.</span></p><p><br></p><p>Microsoft seam to be walking towards this.</p><p><br></p><p>Brad is spot on … in such situation … why an iPhone? Get those users while Apple is distracted playing TV networks and Apple temples and huge margins. Apple Glasses and Watch … while failing to move the iPad fast forward to take on laptops for general computing … would mean zilch in capturing customers. They are behaving like if the race for mobile computing is over much like MS behaved in the first decade regarding personal computing … well it might be … but the personal computing race is a long way from being over. And that race is what matters, mobile is just a lap. Much like desktops and laptops are.</p>
