Wow I thought I was having trouble getting the dl to take. I managed it after about
3 hours and several 3200 errors.
Been playing with it for about an hour now ...some observations and questions:
-the best thing so far was recovering over 100 songs I lost in an HD event in 2010. Thank you iCloud
-flummoxed by how to register contacts so I can message them using Message
-the one feature I really wanted is the ability to link ms Outlook Tasks with Reminders on my iPad in the same way Outlook and iPad calendars link. Can't see how to do it - any ideas folks? This has been on many wish lists for a while now and,if not promised, is strongly implied by Apple's feature list for ios 5. Can't understand why this simple, in demand, feature seems to be so elusive
-hidden jewel (maybe) for me is Safari Reader. Neat IF I can sync my reading list to other platforms eg to a windows pc. Anyone have any thoughts on how to do this?
-beyond the return of my long lost iTunes songs, iCloud isn't a big deal for me as far as music and video streaming goes. I have set up my own 'para cloud' using apps like Airvideo and Streamtome that can likely handle a wider range of file types. But I can see the appeal for people with smaller, iTunes-driven libraries.
Bottom line - jury's out until I understand some features more fully but I'm mildly underwhelmed that I can't answer my questions posed above just by using the upgrade itself. Eg there should be a clearly defined way to sync to Ms Outlook tasks, but I can' t find it
