i do not want my family pics and video recorded by my ipad uploaded anywhere in the net period...but with icloud automatically doing backups, doesnt that compromise our privacy? Can we the user, disable this feature or at least customize it so that we control what is automatically uploaded or backed-up in the icloud?

iOS 6, the new ipad

    Yes and yes.
    To disable go to Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup > iCloud Backup OFF.

    But it may be easier to control what gets backed up. Under "Storage & Backup," go to Manage Storage, select your iPad. You will then see a "Backup Options" header in which you can turn off Camera Roll and anything else you don't want backed up.

    No, think of it like a storage room. The only one who can see the contents is you, the keyholder.
