    Huh, yet it never seemed to work for me. None of my Angry Bird levels were restored...

    I tested this before and the WiFi password never resyncs. Seems strange. Another reason to not run google apps though.

    Don't Windows Live accounts do this too? What about Apple and Amazon/Kindle?

    Windows Live doesn't sync WiFi as far as they say. I wouldn't put it past MS to do so though. Apple will start syncing with the release of iOS 7 and keychain syncing via iCloud. Amazon kindle doesn't claim to do this at all and only seems to sync back book data.

    I am always of the mindset anything you put on another entity's cloud server farm without encrypting it yourself, is resting there in plaintext or where a global keystore exists.
