    Anyone else been thrown this?

    Also, Match seems to be stuck at 3/4 of the complete with first step (after yesterday it got to Step 3 before my computer died, oops). Anyone else having problems with this part of the matching or am I gonna have to hit the dev forum for this?

    That's been a common issue since the opening of iCloud to the devs. I'm sure they know about it by now.

    Well, Apple seems to use (buy/rent) Amazon's server space, they aren't necessarily backed by AWS. For your problem, I think the certificate will be fixed/renewed before iCloud goes live. Hopefully.

    I bumped into something interesting after buying Little Snitch 3, it appears that Apple use amazon AWS for it's iCloud services....

    Can someone confirm this?

    The reason why I being thos up is that immediately after the restart I get the following:

    It's just the first time I actually noticed it.. Usually when Apple Apps fire up I just allow... It's only because I just reinstalled that I scrutinised it.

    Kudos to Amazon! I might have to look into their AWS myself as I've looked around and the reviews are looking good.

    I use AWS Glacier for mass photo storage, good stuff. Along with Arq, hard to beat.

    I can't say yes or no, but I would figure that apple's user base is growing faster they even apple expected. Data centers are not built overnight and Apply would be smart to use a service like AWS for fail-over capacity while it continues to build up its own data center.

    It is also possible Apple uses AWS for a backup to its datacenter. Apple is the primary, AWS the backup.
