First off... I have watched the video, I have read some of the literature. I'm sure some of the questions I ask will live somewhere in
writing but I wanted to get a personal take from people on a few of these issues.
Through this entire process... I've been trying to figure out what iCloud offers me? From what I can tell, there are no aditions and
instead... they are deleting three services I use extensively:
Am I understanding it correctly that these three services will simply not exist going forward?
If I am... can I ask those who use these regularly, what options are you going to use in the future? I have used
iDisk for my business quite a bit. Any recommendations on replacements for these?
Another common question here probably, but I have an iTunes account with one ID.... and a Mac Mail account with another.
The tween have never met. Now, with setting up iCloud, I'm trying to figure out what strategy to use to merge these two. (Even though
I'm told that's impossible?) How do I not lose my purchases.... if I plan to keep my Mac Mail ID as my main ID?
As for mail... I'm reading a lot of people having problems after making the iCloud move. If Mobile Me is going away.... does that
mean that Mac Mail will stay as a free service? What kind of quality can we expect from that, given that Mac Mail was shaky at best to
start with? Am I understanding this that the $95 per year Mobile Me option just vanishes... but mail stays? That seems odd.
Again, sorry if some of this is repeat questions, but I'm hoping real humans can put this in lanaguage that I can wrap my brain around, particularly
if some of you have faced these same decisions with the services.
