At first we were a single iPod family. One itunes, one device to sync. Life was easy. Then came another iPod, still, living the high life. And another. Then came the iPod Touch. It needed an AppleID, no big deal. Then came an iPad. Hmm, let's make a new AppleID, linked to a new credit card. Confusion. iPhone5...used the first AppleID. Hmmm. Now enter soon 4th iPod...another Touch. Introducing another member of the family to Apple. Potential confusion. A third AppleID? What would happen if I created a 4th AppleID called, hmmm, OurFamilyAppleID, and pointed everyone to that one. Would iMessage stop? Would we all get the same iMessage across our device family? Yuck. This may be a question: We'd all share the same apps, music, movies, books. This would be fine. How does a family make all these work, especially one that has grown from just a single device?
