So you want to share files between two devices?

Where's the money in that?
Why would any company support such a feature?

I just can't imagine, how that would work economically.

A very insightful thread, Derek! I am a classical cane user myself, will never get a smart cane because of the weight and overwhelming information they can provide. I have to concentrate hard enough as is. And over the years, my canes became lighter instead of heavier.

Here's a computer problem, 9/10 developers can't solve it.

you have two computers,

One you are able to upgrade any of the parts or even use an entire server room full of computers as good as money can buy

The other is a computer-like device picked randomly from anywhere on the planet statistically it's going to be a low end android phone

You have to display an image on the 2nd device

where do you choose to do the bulk of the work required to render the page?

"The #COVID lockdown has demonstrated 3 things:

* Our economy collapses as soon as it stops selling useless stuff to over-indebted people

* It is perfectly possible to reduce pollution

* The lowest paid people in the country are essential to its functioning"

Tip #7
Edit your PDFs directly in #libreoffice writer.
When exporting a text document to PDF, tick the "Hybrid PDF" option. This will create a PDF that also contains the .odt file inside. This allows you to either open the PDF in any document viewer as a PDF or in a text editor as an .odt file without any formatting loss. Try it for yourself and never lose the source file to a PDF!

what does a cell phone has that a computer does not... so you can just make a call from your computer, or use a mobile sim? I'm not talking VoIP, I'm talking taking a sim out of your phone and putting into your computer...

@amoroso any thoughts?
