How does having a Cloud email address make life better? I understand that you can send and receive emails but why use a Cloud email address to do it when I'm sure we already have perfectly valid email addresses?

it doesn't. it is simply another email service like gmail, hotmail, yahoo, etc. i guess the only benefit is that it's integrated with icloud in a single place. i don't use my icloud email but many do.

It's so that the email address reflects the branding of the service, as does Yahoo and Google mail. If you already have an @me.com address you can simply go on using it: there's no obligation to use the @icloud.com version, but new subscribers and any aliases created from now on will be @icloud.com.

This is nothing more than "address association with current technology"?
@mac was the original format for Apple associted email
@me came along when Mobile Me was created
@icloud is now the latest generation of the Apple email address format
All three will filter to the "iCloud" mailbox associated with your Apple ID, therefore, all three are valid addresses and could be actively used. It is completely up to the user as to which they prefer.
I have @me and @icloud and have no issues.
