    I spent some time screwing around with mobile me and swear I got a personal domain name associated with my account (I think I found some dns servers I was able to point too via my registrar) but reversed it and my trial expired.

    I realize its just out in beta but am wondering if anyone thinks this will be possible, or if iCloud is going to be for email only.

    In this case I'll look to Google and Dropbox to handle my cloud requirements and continue to look for value in iCloud. (maybe backing up my iDevices and storing movies)

    I will move my site, it is a shame I will not be able to publish my photos to that site though my iOS.

    I do not want a site with advertisement, so no flickr or photobucket.
