Syncing made easy in Windows® 8
Of all the features in Windows 8, synchronization of data between your different gadgets that are based on Microsoft’s operating systems is one of the best.
According to Paul Thurrott, you can sync screen from three different gadgets like your Windows phone, Windows 8 desktop, and the TV (considering it is Xbox vNext). You can sync content like picture, music, and movies or videos with the help of a Cloud-based platform called SkyDrive. Why transfer the media or files every single time you want to access them on your other gadget when you can sync the devices and access them easily?
There’s another rumor that’s doing the rounds. A new feature called “beaming” will be introduced by Microsoft in Windows 8 that will allow the transfer of files from their PCs to tablets and phones easily. In simple terms, this is something similar to the infrared feature that was present in mobiles a few years ago. This could be a big game changer if this rumor is true.
