First off, thank you so much Winston, for shedding a GOOD light on this iCloud !! I suspect at some point, Apple will have to provide some solution for merging multiple Apple IDS. What do you think?
If I am to understand correctly then, in order to keep my @me.com e-mail account, I should now follow the prompt to move my Mobileme account to iCloud. CORRECT?
I have no idea what to expect once I am inside "the cloud", but this e-mail address would then NOT be lost.
And so, AFTERWARDS, I would be logging in to iCloud using that @mac.com account login, i.e. APPLE ID?? CORRECT?
I must change the APPLE ID login on my iPad for iCloud to that as well?
And seperately, still use the OTHER e-mail address that was used for setting up iTunes to log in there. Will that show up then when I go into iCloud?
HOW would it all then synchronize across my iMac and iPad2?
Sorry for my confused state...... I just need to know exactly step by step how to proceed. I was led to believe today (at a local APPLE STORE) that if I don't use the iTunes APPLE ID, that I would not be able to sync everything.
ALSO, MUST I upgrade my iPhoto immediately...... or can it wait and THEN I could start using photostream once that is completed?
