    Looks like iCloud is working, albeit slowly.

    my initial 550 MB backup to iCloud took 5 hours shortly after the initial launch. looks like due to all the new users logging in to the service things will be slow for a bit until the huge rush of traffic dies down. Subsequent backups have taken much less time.

    That's why I haven't done the backup to iCloud at this point. I am concerned about the length of time factor, and willing til things get a bit more worked out with it. I am just fine with pc direct to iTunes or doing a wifi sync. That doesn't take long for me.
