Let me preface this post with this: Please respond with intelligent non-fanboyish responses. I think the concept of the iCloud is fine and all but I think Apple could have and should have done more. Being able to sync your contacts and calendars is a feature that I feel like was a given. Besides that all it seems they added was the ability to sync your media (pics, vids, and media) to the cloud. It is a nice feature that changes to documents are pushed to other Mac devices but I feel like they could have done better. The same way they allow a Windows user to have their pics pushed to the "Pictures" folder, is the same way they could have made it so that documents that have been changed could be pushed to the device. Better yet it could have been done in similar fashion as Dropbox does (for those that don't know, Dropbox shows up as a folder on your computer but the contents of it is actually on the cloud). Also, it seems that the music portion of definitely could have been done better. I don't understand why you should have to download your music to your device to play it. A better way to do it would have been to give the option of streaming from the cloud or playing it locally from the device (a la Google Music Beta). One final thing that I find alarming (and hopefully it won't actually be this way) is that they say the cloud will not keep a warehouse of your pics and that they will remain there for 30 days. They stated that if you want to keep the pics that you would need to simply select save to album. My issue is, what if a person takes a lot of pictures (ie. they have small kids) and they don't remember to "save to album" each picture they want. Will that person eventually lose those pics at the end of 30 days? Hopefully that will not be the case, otherwise I can see that becoming a problem very quickly. Overall I give the iCloud a grade of C+. It's average to slightly above average but needs improvement. What do you guys think? Again, please respond with reasonable and intelligent posts. Thanks.
