    Lets take DropBox(because it's widely used). Once you've signed up for an account(Either through the app or web browser), You can have every photo and video(wifi only) uploaded automatically. They will still be available on your device but you can now view them from any internet connected device.

    There are many options available to you. And depending on your needs, some may suit you better than others. I use DropBox and Box. But for two different purposes.

    BTW, you can upload through cellular automatically with dropbox as well.

    Opps. Yes. The way I posted that it looks like you can only load on wifi. You can only load videos on Wifi. Pics will be cellular or wifi. Thanks Jay.

    and add GDrive (Google) or SkyDrive (Windows). Like BHP says, different ones for different purposes. That's a luxury, right?
    I use GDrive and SkyDrive for all my docs - private and business - and I have them sync between each other and my PC (Mac and Windows). GDrive is my "mobile office" and SkyDrive just backs it all up as well.
    Dropbox is just for entertainment. Photos, videos, music.
    It looks confusing, but it's not. Pretty simple.

    Lol. You're not at all. It's a restriction placed on iOS devices apparently. Same as file name change. I can change the name on Android but not iOS. I have no idea why they do this.

    Control my friend...control.

    That brings up one of my issues with Apple. What possible reason would they have for placing such a restriction? Especially if you log in from the web and can do it?

    You may find fault, but at the very least I can change a file name to "timcook-peepeehead" if I wanna....

    This isn't a iOS restriction. It's Dropbox. Has nothing to do with Apple.

    Don't know. I've emailed them and they said that they are working on it. That it will be in a future update. I've yet to see it. Every other cloud storage solution offers this simple task. Just not Dropbox. It's not huge to me. Most everything I upload into Dropbox is already labeled. Or doesn't need one. I use Box more than Dropbox. It's much better for what I use it for.

    Well this is good news. Samsungs horrible plastic is an injustice to their awesome innards, and performance.

    Why couldn't they implement the outside door slot like the Blackberry 9000? That was such a sweet feature, having the ability to take the sdcard out without messing with the battery cover. It worked flawlessly... I still use mine to this day.

    Metal phone does not mean that you couldn't swap out a battery either, they just need to try harder and try to come up with something that works. They can implement a battery that slides in and out like the magazine in a pistol or something.... They can figure it out.

    I agree with you, but past devices proves that they know how to do it.

    The first Desire HD was all metal with a removal battery from the bottom, the sim and MSD card was in the same area. Then you had the HD2 was also all metal with a removable metal battery door.

    What pissed me off is that the OEM's act like they don't know how to give us a removable battery and MSD card slots with premium metal body design; when they have made devices in the past with those options.

    Just like how they have a sim card tray, they can create one for the MSD card as well. I would like to see a remake of the HD2. Loved that device.
    ..........SHAKE N BAKE..........

Cards have become redundant.
    I'm using a S4. No card.
    I have no card in my 16gig S3, but simply transfer media over to my notebook (444gig hard drive). My 7" Nexus 7 doesn't even have a card slot. I agree they are redundant these days.
