Re: ubuntu one


I don't think syncing is the answer. For example, I am using 400 GB of
space in my home directory on my workstation. That's more than 10 times
the total amount of space my phone has. It would obviously be
impossible to sync it.

What I want is not syncing. It is access and caching of certain more
important things, like contacts/calendar.  I don't need to copy all my
data to my phone, because I don't need it all the time.

I certainly don't want sync services killing battery and eating data
all the time trying to keep things synchronized, when it's not really
