    Sorry if I missed it, but what's happening to iDisk? Is there still gonna be a facility for choosing any data to upload, or is that 5GB reserved for iWork files? Hmm...

    There is nothing in iCloud that replaces iDisk. That is our problem.

    Is there a way to share large files with groups of people in iCloud?

    iDisk is going to be around until at least 30th June 2012.

    Awesome, free year too :)

    i guess that gives us time to adjust to iCloud or find an alternative to transferring files to any other apple devices or windows that we don't OWN :S

    maybe the revolutionary USB flash drive ;)

    lol

    do still love the concept of iCloud though :D

    I think its great that they will give us 5gb for documents, but I wondering if its only for pages. I would like to use the iCloud for MS Office as well but I bet thats a long reach.

    The WWDC event emphasized 5GB "free" storage space. This implies there will be more space available if you want to pay for it IMO.

    Why would it be a reach? iCloud will be transparent. If Office can't access files storied there, then it is opaque. iCloud can't very well be both transparent and opaque at the same time now, can it?

    First Apple seems to let iWeb die on the vine, now the future of iDisk is unclear. It seems like someone doesn't want me to have a web presence.

    iDisk?

    I hope we will be able to relocate our iDisk files over to iCloud. As 6 months of free subscription doesn't do justice for having to relocate over 10 Gb of files.
    If they just shut shop with iDisk, it doesn't give you much faith in "cloud" storage when a business as big as Apple pulls the plug.

    I've had a .mac & .me account because of the stability.
    But the future of that seems ... unclear.
