    Since apple ID is separate from actual me.com account, is there a way to sync my gmail so it is in the cloud?
    Also, can I add documents to the iCloud?

    This is so confusing, but i love it!

    Gmail is already in a "cloud", it's just not the same cloud as iCloud. Add your Gmail account(s) in System Preferences/Settings -> Mail, Contacts & Calendars.

    Well I just wanted the convenience of opening icloud and be able to check all my mail at once.
    Why would anyone use @me.com accounts if you can just use @gmail.com on your iphone?
    Unless you were an user.
    Oh well.

    How about documents, how do I upload...?

    With MobileMe, you used to be able to add POP3 accounts to the webmail interface, but not anymore. You can use a Gmail AppleID to create an iCloud account, but the mail for iCloud is @me.com or, if you are still holding onto an old .Mac account, @mac.com.

    We need to wait for iWork updates for iOS and Mac to come out before we'll be able to use Documents in the Cloud.

    It's probably done, just not released yet.
