    That Phone connector to SBS is really cool. I personally don’t have a use for it, but I can see a number of sys admins really loving that. I wonder if you can unlock user accounts from the app? That could come in handy.

    One thing missing, the option to automatically upload photos to the Home Server instead of Facebook or Skydrive. Besides that, it seems to be near perfect.
