    Microsoft says now that the person is the hub, not the PC. I think that's true, but the technology is not there.

    Here's a dream of mine. I get in my car with my Windows Phone. Thru Bluetooth/Mira Cast/Continuum or something, my infotainment center sees my apps and settings for vehicle mode. On the car's screen all the apps I've selected to be available there, with my settings/music/files/maps/etc available.

    If Microsoft is listening, I've got a bunch of ideas like this that would make Microsoft the platform/service, and devices just work for me.

    As it stands right now. If I'm on my phone and a Cortana reminder comes up, I can 'Complete' it. Then go home and it's sitting on my desktop at home, reminding me. Later when I turn on my tablet, there it is again.

    The technology is there, but it's not implemented yet in current hardware. The Gadgets app on Windows 10 can detect and launch an app when a certain gadget (Bluetooth or wired) is connected. It wouldn't be too big a stretch for there to be a Car-tinuum view that's optimized for a car infotainment screen and speakers--once Miracast or DisplayPort-over-USB is supported in car--and that turns on once it's connected either wired or wirelessly.

    The major hurdle might be not necessarily the tech but the safety concerns to have a helpful Windows-based Car system that doesn't distract. Windows Phone does have a Driving Mode; it would/could simply expand on those features that already exist.
