    I have enabled iCloud Photo Library on both iPhone 5S (IOS 8.02) and Macbook Pro (Yosemite)

    iPhone settings for iCloud (Photo Library) reports that I have 3 photos in iCloud (gallery only shows 1 photo (?), but otherwise it seems to sync to icloud fine when taking a new picture)

    Where are these photos located excactly (icloud), and how can I see/use them on my Macbook?

    It seems that iCloud Photo Library will not be fully functional untill start of next year.. sigh

    Maybe Apple should not launch an unfinished/useless but "available" function

    Any further specification on how that will work? I saw that Apple is replacing iPhoto with Photos in OS X, but any discoveries on potential release dates?

    All I have read has said early 2015, but it seems strange to launch it on iOS with no real means of having it operate on OSX. I get that they are doing it as a public beta for iOS (still don't get how that will work on a non-beta iOS release....will the icon be there but you choose whether to touch it or something? I see some confused-ass people come Monday afternoon). Could they not have issued another Public Beta for Yosemite and added it to that for the adventurous? Seems like a fragmented rollout to me (strange considering all the Android bashing Apple tends to do at their conferences).

    On a sidenote, anyone else waiting until late Monday afternoon to make sure 8.1 doesn't turn into another 8.0.1? Let the rest of the world be our guinea pigs?
