    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.

    Thanks; just looked up "match", and it will cost $25/year. CRAP

    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
