What's the difference between "My Contacts" and "All Contacts"?

What's the difference between "My Contacts" and "All Contacts"?
I have no other account other then my iCloud account (from what I can tell), but "My Contacts" has a significantly smaller number of contacts then "All Contacts".
What's the difference?

Thanks for posting the screenshots, that's helpful.  I didn't realize that you were looking at your groups.
"All Contacts" include (as the name implies) all of your contacts.  Below that are any contact groups that you may have defined.  These would normally be such things as "Work", "Personal", "Doctors", etc.; any groups that you find useful to define.  These contain subsets of the "All Contacts" group.
At some point, perhaps inadvertently, you must have created a group called "My Contacts", or imported it to iCloud from your computer.  At the time this may have contained all of your contacts and would have had the same number of contacts as the "All Contacts" group.  Then over time you probably added 433 additional contacts that were never part of the original "My Contacts" group, resulting in an "All Contacts" group that contained 1465 contacts.
If you don't have any use for the "My Contacts" group, you can delete it by clicking on it on the left sidebar, click the gear icon on the lower left and choose Delete.  If you're concerned about doing this, you can make a backup of this group first by selecting it on the left sidebar, clicking on a single contact within the group, pressing Control-A to select them all (they should all be highlighted), then clicking the gear icon and choosing Export vCard.  This will create a .vcf file that can later be imported back to iCloud if you ever need to (by clicking the gear icon again and choosing Import vCard).

  • What is the difference between partner function and partner type

    Hi Gurus,
    What is the difference between partner function and partner type?

    Hi John,
    The partner types allow us to distinguish between different business partners such as customer, vendor, employee etc and the partner functions represent the functionality or role each partner plays within the business transaction.
    For example under the partner type Customer, you will find - Sold to party, Ship to party, Bill to party, Payer.
    The business partners that exist in the market place are represented with a partner type in the R/3 system. Examples of business partners are customer, vendor, employee and contact person.
    The following partner types are defined in the partner processing for the sales & distribution module –
    a.     AP – contact person (06)
    b.     KU – customer (07)
    c.     LI – vendor (08)
    d.     PE – employee/personnel (09)
    Assigning the partner functions in the SAP system determines the functions of particular partner in the sales process. One partner may take on several functions also.

  • What's the difference between SharePoint 2013 and Office 365 Team Sites?

    Hi there,
    What are the differences between SharePoint 2013 and Office 365 Team Sites?
    If I would like to develop a professional corporate website with SharePoint technology (because the company allready uses Office 365), do you recommend using SharePoint 2013 (in the cloud) or Office 365 Team Sites? And why?
    Thank you very much!

    You cannot make SPO Team Sites anonymous-enabled, therefor they're a moot point for a public website.
    While slightly out of date, take a look at this:

  • What is the difference between quarterly patches and patch sets

    What is the difference between quarterly patches and patch sets?
    Should we always apply the latest quarterly pathches?
    Is it better to apply to the latest patch set if one can afford?

    The quarterly patch sets are generally security fixes, or Critical Patch Updates (CPU). Oracle strongly recommends that the CPU patches are applied. CPU and quarterly patches do not change the release/version of the database.
    The patch sets contain bug fixes and do change the release/version of the database.
    As with all patches you should test them on a test database before deploying in production. If you have vendor supported applications you should contact your vendor before applying any patchsets.

  • What is the difference between Topic Keywords and Index File Keywords?

    What is the difference between Topic Keywords and Index File Keywords? Any advantages to using one over the other? Do they appear differently in the generated index?
    I'm using Webhelp

    Hi there
    When you create a RoboHelp project you end up with many different ancillary files that are used to store different bits of information. Many of these files bear the name you assigned to the project at the time you created it. The index file has the project name and it ends with a .HHK file extension. (HHK meaning HTML Help Keywords)
    Generally, unless you change RoboHelp's settings, you add keywords to this file and associate topics to the keywords via the Index pod. At the time you compile a CHM or generate other types of output, the file is consulted and the index is built.
    As I said earlier, the default is to add keywords to the Index file until you configure RoboHelp to add the keywords to the topics themselves. Once you change this, any keyword added will become a META tag in the topic code. If your keyword is BOFFO, the META tag would look like this:
    <meta name="MS-HKWD" content="BOFFO" />
    When the help is compiled or generated, the Index (.HHK) file is consulted as normal, but any topics containing keywords added in this manner are also added to the Index you end up with. From the appearance perspective, the end user woudn't know the difference or be able to tell. Heck, if all you ever did was interact with the Index pod, you, as an author wouldn't know either. Well, other than the fact that the icons appear differently.
    Operationally, keywords added to the topics themselves may hold an advantage in that if you were to import these topics into other projects, the Index keywords would already be present.
    Hopefully this helps... Rick

  • What is the difference between Video-out and mirroring?

    What is the difference between Video-out and mirroring? I can't get iPhone 4 video to work on my TV screen
    I have just bought an MD098ZM/A (Apple 30-pin Digital AV Adapter). I am struggling to get it to show a picture on my TV. I know I'm doing something right because the audio is coming out of my TV speakers but no picture on the TV screen.
    I have used the same HDMI channel (on the TV side) with the same cable and my thunderbolt port (MacBook Air) without any trouble - and on the same app (BBC iPlayer download then full-screen mode).
    Now I note that the packaging for the MD098ZM/A says video-out on iPhone 4 but mirroring only on iPhone 4S. I only have an iPhone 4 (not the 4S). Now if the lack of iPhone 4 support for mirroring means that I can't play video material out to my TV, then in what sense is there any video-out capability at all?
    There is only safety and warranty paperwork in the Apple adapter packaging - no help information. And I haven't found further guidance online either.
    I do note somewhere online that it suggests that basic non-mirroring video-out (for this adapter) only works with some external TV sets. Any way of finding out which? I'm using a Sanyo CE32LD90-B LCD TV if it helps.
    So far not doing very well.

    Now found these but have had to give up on this adapter!

  • What is the difference between jsp :include and server side include

    what is the difference between jsp :include and server side include(request dispatcher include method)????
    i understand that both request dispatcher include method and jsp:include take dynamic data,so when would one use request dispatcher include and when jsp:include.
    Is the usage interchangeable?i believe jsp include is used only for jsp/html but include directive can be used to include servlets ,jsp and html....correct me if i m wrong and
    do suggest if u hav ny other diff in this context...

    The difference really is: in what format do you want your inclusions? If your environment has many Java developers and only a few designers that focus mainly on, say, Flash, that might push you more towards the server-side include() directive. Or, if you have a large set of pages that receive dynamic content that is displayed in a consistent fashion (such as a workflow header area on a page).
    If, on the other hand, you have more web designers, there may be a greater desire to deal in markup rather than Java code. Java developers themselves might prefer to view markup (JSP) that more resembles the eventual output than something occuring in Java code.
    Finally, there are considerations of tiering. While it is totally possible to (and I have previously) implement 'view classes' that render markup or generate layout templates, JSP's offer, IMO, a subtle, psychological advantage. By forcing a developer to work in a different format, markup versus Java source, the separation on view from controller and model becomes a bit easier. It is still possible to make mistakes, but if a developer at some point notices, "Wait, I'm in a JSP, should I be importing a java.sql class?", then the choice to use JSP includes has paid off in spades.

    Any call made from the API will automatically be set to the “Session Timeout” period, no matter
    what. Calls made from EWA (Excel Web Access) will get the “Short Session Timeout” period assigned to it initially.

  • What is the difference between document class and normal class

    Please let me know what is the difference between document class and normal class.
    And I have no idea which class should call as document class or call as an object.

    the document class is invoked immediately when your swf opens.  the document class must subclass the sprite or movieclip class.
    all other classes are invoked explicitly with code and need not subclass any other class.

  • In OSX Activity Monitor, what's the difference between 'free' memory and 'inactive' memory

    In OS X Activity Monitor, what's the difference between 'free' memory and 'inactive' memory. My daughters 2Gb MacBook Pro is very slow, it probably needs more memory but there is almost 1Gb of 'inactive' memory but no 'free' memory when an application is opened.

    Free RAM is the one that has not been used by any application since you started up your Mac, and inactive RAM is the one that was used by an application and it is not in use anymore.
    1 GB of inactive RAM is a lot, and it may be the cause of the slowness. There are a lot of apps that allows you to turn inactive into free RAM. I use FreeMemory, but have a look at the Mac App Store.
    If you are a developer, you can do that with a command you can type into Terminal:
    sudo purge

  • What is the difference between Business System and Business Service?

    Please tell me what is the difference between Business System and Business Service...? In real time at what situation we will use Business System and in what situations we will use Business Service..? Please help me
    Best Regards
    Ravi Shankar B

    Business system:
    If you want to address a particular business system as the sender or receiver of messages, choose this service type.
    A business system is an actual application system in a system landscape. A business system (service) comprises information about the inbound and outbound interfaces and the software component versions of the business system.
    You usually use business system services when configuring internal company processes.
    Business Service:
    If you want to address an abstract business entity as the sender or receiver of messages, choose this service type.
    Using a business service, you can define the technical or business subunits of the companies involved and then assign them the relevant interfaces.
    You usually use business services when configuring cross-company processes. In this case, you only make your interfaces known to the business partners involved and either do not make any details about your own system landscape available, or only specific details. 
    For example, you can define RosettaNet Partner Interface Processes (PIPs) as business services.
