You can do the same thing on iOS. Download whatever apps/music/blah you want and sync via iCloud.

The permanent copy exists on the cloud in GMAIL servers that I access on a laptop whenever I want too. This "ability" is more of a tech demo and really offers no real world use.

Why would I want an app that would allow me to transfer file attachments to my laptop when I can just log in on GMAIL via my laptop and download it directly.

Weren't you just arguing that iphone is better because it needs less modification?
Exactly. I didn't need the modification on my phone so I deleted it.

Yes we did, a Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant and a Garminfone. The Garminfone is now being used in my wife's car as strictly a gps and it does a fine job there. My Galaxy S is sitting in a bag next to my computer awaiting a hammer or something, I don't know.

Of course it does. You don't always have access to the cloud, especially on an iphone which cannot function as a wifi access point without jailbreaking, which you just said rather emphatically that you don't do. (stock android supports wifi tethering btw)

Actually Rakeesh it says I am able to use my iphone 4S as a wifi hot spot to tether to my computer if I want. I have to pay Sprint for that just like T Mobile wanted me to pay them to do it on my Android phone.

You are reading the wrong internets.
