    Just to let everyone know, I am a new iPad user. I realize icloud and iOS 5 are suppose to come this fall. But, when I downloaded a song off my iPhone, (while my iPad 2 was charging), I got a message on my iPad telling me to turn on my automatic downloads to receive new purchases from other devices (wirelessly). So I did, and I was takin to iTunes purchases, which enabled me to download that song. My question is, has the icloud icon always been next to the purchased item u can redownload on your new device? I guess I never noticed that before.

    Now that to me, sounds exactly like what icloud is suppose to be. Or am I wrong?

    That is iCloud iTunes Beta. Available to everyone right now, has been since June. Essentially what iCloud will be like once it is fully released.

    I would predict at least another 4 weeks at the very earliest.... But closer to 6 weeks in reality.
    As there is still a good amount of work that still needs to be done IMHO

    Apple haven't even called for developers to submit iOS 5 apps for approval yet so it is still a while off yet.

    Good point. Did not think about that. Don't they usually do this after GM's release?
