Due to a contact list sync disaster with MobileMe a while back I've been playing it real close with iCloud. At the moment I have only Calendar appointments synced over the ipad/iphone/Win7 PC universe. I may do Notes next as I see how well the calendar function is playing over iCloud. And this time I have been exporting my Outlook contacts monthly into its own separate file instead of a few times a year. ---------- So it seems I cannot sync Notes without creating a "free @me.com email address" what the HELL is the point of that?
