    Hi guys,

    Can someone jsut clarify my misunderstanding?

    If you put on music/photos on your 64Gb iPod and iCloud distributes it to your 8Gb Air or 16Gb iPhone, how does it handle things when your Air or phone is full?

    Can you partially download hundreds of tunes, and then delete them and download hundreds more, then do the same and put back the first download - or is it a 'one off download' to your device?

    Hope I'm clear

    I think your getting confused between icloud, itunes match and itunes in the cloud.

    in the UK only music you have bought from itunes can be 'downloaded' from other devices, untill itunes match comes out that will copy any CDs or mp3s you have bought from somewhere else to be like music you bought from itunes.

    needless to say you devices won't be overloaded, and yes you can delete any music and videos on device to redownload any other music you have in itunes in the cloud.
