The early returns are in on the iCloud, and they are mostly positive. They have solved the number one problem with mobile me, which was that it would randomly create duplicate contacts, leaving me with nine entries for people I had forgotten about three years ago.
Cleaning up duplicate contacts was the least they could do, though. The only disappointing aspect to iCloud is that I have to spend even more money to match iTunes across all my devices. This service is called, ironically, iTunes Match. Isn’t matching things across devices supposed to be an advantage of outsourcing our personal privacy to the cloud, though?
By the time I wrote the last paragraph, however, I was already over it. Apple provides innovative things, and that costs money. They deserve the rewards that go along with creating cool stuff.
I’m sure I’ll be checking back with other features as I discover them.
