In using my iPad for several years now, I, like many others, have discovered that I use my desktop PC much less often these days. They'll be weeks I go without turning it on. That's fine. I find the iPad to be better for most of my consumption, i.e. music, movies, applications, etc. However, I still own a lot of CDs, so I do use iTunes Match to get that music up to the cloud. I would prefer to start buying new music in the iTunes Store, but I am concerned about something: Apple has touted that the iPad is a Post-PC device, and they have even went as far as saying that some people want the iPad or iPhone as their only device. They labeled this as "PC Free" during their iOS 5 event. If the iPad really is PC Free, then how can we be certain that all our music, movies, television shows, etc. will always be available via iCloud? What happens if I buy ten albums on my iOS device and Apple loses their license(s) for my purchased content? They would tell me it was my responsibility to have backed those files up to a hard drive, but since iPads have no support for that kind of thing, it seems we are at the mercy for iTunes in the Cloud (and not really PC Free or Post-PC at all). I think this is a major hurdle in ensuring that we always have what we buy on our PC Free devices. What does everyone here think about this? How do we buy only an iPad and still always be privileged to what we buy? Why can't Apple place copies of each sold/licensed track into each of our accounts so as to never have that content disappear from the user's devices?
