I just realized, while commenting on another thread, that I am no longer tied up by wires. Ever since I switched to L920 (and now 1020) and Windows 8 - since Zune has become useless - I've found myself going wireless (including charging). I think I've used Windows Phone Connector, or whatever its called once, and I completely forgot about it. We can now update/upgrade software via cellular radio, and sync our files to the cloud (Skydrive and ATT) and access them from any device. Hell even my music (Xbox Music) that was stored on my broken laptop just appeared on my new laptop and on my new phone without me even lifting a finger.
Yes, I know we still need it for times when we don't have internet access, but I can't remember the last time I did not have internet access. I just find it so much more liberating. :)

How do you get the high res photos off? Also, with Xbox music, are the songs just available for streaming? I know on Windows 8 there is the option to download them physically from the cloud to the computer, but I can't find that option on my phone.
My Device History circa 2007:
Nokia 1020 > Nokia 920 > Nokia 900 > HTC Titan > HP Pre 3 > HP Veer > Palm Pre 2 > HTC Evo > Palm Pre > iPhone 3G > iPhone

Until there's a file manager that works over wi-fi (like ES File Explorer on Android for example), or the current USB phone/computer interaction experience can be enabled over wi-fi instead of USB, I'll be transferring files via USB. No way am I wasting my time and Internet bandwidth transferring my private data through a server on the Internet somewhere just because of stupid OS limitations. I'll decide what gets stored on my phone and how+when it gets stored there. And relying on streaming is out of the question until wireless data is available everywhere I want to use my phone with reliable service at a reasonable price, which I highly doubt will be happening anytime soon in the United States.
