How do I get my music to icloud?

OK, just got my ipod touch, set up my icloud account, but do not see anyway to send my music to icloud?

Also, I was told that music and pictures do not count towards the 5GB free storage; true?

Thank you

You need iTunes match, which isn't available yet.

Realize that "match" gives you an iTunes copy of the song. Which means that no, it won't count towards the limit; Instead of actually uploading the files it just lets you redownload them from the iTunes store as many times as you please.

No probs, just take it back and buy a competitor's media player. I'm sure there are loads that do exactly what you're asking for free.

Call me crazy -- but I think $25 A YEAR is a pretty good deal, considering the convenience etc.

Just my .02
