    I don't want my data in the "cloud". Is there any way to complete disassociate all of my and my families devices from the iCloud? We have a 3 macs, 3 iPhones and an iPad, and I want them to not connect to iCloud at all. Turning off all apps access to iCloud means that we get prompted for an iCloud password a lot.

    If iCloud is the future, I may move away from Apple.

    I'm curious, why you don't want data on cloud?

    But if you really really want to stop using iCloud, here's link to how to do it. (in the bottom of the article)
    Don't know does it work the way you want it but it's the official Apple way.

    So no android, no Windows since their cloud solutions are more mature and baked in than Apple until iCloud Drive. Whatever, I would think if you go into manage storage then delete all of the backups. Then turn off/ sign out on all of your devices and choose the save data on each device. Is the old data really gone? Well thats where tinfoil is required.
