Fully updated now on both devices, just getting iCloud sorted. I need to download and install a 667MB update for Aperture to enable Photo Steaming on the iMac.

Bonus, Apple gave me the 25GB storage upgrade free, until the end of June when my MobileMe account will expire. Since keeping it would be less than half the cost that MobileMe was, I may keep it. I'm sure that is what they are angling for. ;)
Yep, glad to have that extra 20GB's! It's a "gateway drug" you know. :D

:D I know. On the other hand it looks like it might be kind of difficult to use all that space at first. There is no general access to the stuff you upload to iCloud; only the app that uploads it can access it (or other apps by the same developer if they so desire).

I've just copied about 30MB of text files from iDisk to iCloud using GoodReader's new options; but if I should ever loose GoodReader I'd also lose access to those files in iCloud. That makes it a bit less than a secure backup.

DropBox and the other Cloud services are not obsolete; a fact I'm sure they appreciate.

Nah, I went to sleep around 4:30, with an alarm to wake me to try again before 10. Once the download started, I crashed again, only to get up a hour later to find out the durn computer had followed my example. :D

Most of the rest of the day was spent (with suitable breaks) getting the iMac working right. I did not get back to work updating the iPad and iPhone until around 4 this evening, and I'm only just now finishing up.

And boy am I tired. As soon as I finish skimming the tech news of the day, I'm crashing again. Hopefully the computer won't. :D

So after the update, I'm left with no music on my iPad :(
I'm sure I can fix that later, but here is a question.....when I tried to back up with iCloud it keeps telling me it won't work? what is this about?

I'm with you, but I just finished mine, thank goodness. My iPad is a mess with apps though. I'm not too good with iTunes, quite frankly it scares me. But boy what a relief!!

Congrats leelai. If you see this, what happened to your apps? Did your folders get messed up?

Thanks. Yes my apps are all over the place and a lot were missing. I've been rearranging and I've just restarted it and now I think they are all here. I've yet to really look. What about you, when do you think you'll take the leap?

Oh no. I have a lot of folders with carefully arranged apps so I think I will take screenshots before upgrading. I will probably wait at least a week before jumping in... at least. I hate to miss out on all the fun though. :)

I wish i had taken screenshots and i did actually think about it and then completely forgot. I think waiting a week is a very good idea and wish I could have done that but we're going to New York on Tuesday, so I need to get this back up to scratch. It sure hasn't been fun though, at least not for me, more a cringing and biting my nails kind of thing. So glad it's done!! Good luck for when you take the plunge though

I can tweet via safari and I've also downloaded iCab Mobile which is also great. Having a blast with the new IOS. However, I am getting an error message when I use iMessage on my iPad. Would anyone know why?

Idk how wireless sync is actually going to work, but I'm excited.

I don't know about this cloud syncing, can't figure out why all my photos didn't sync! That's it back to syncing with iTunes on the PC, I'll sort this out once the issues smooth out.

Glad I waited until today. Started at 10:00 am, finished at 11:10. No problem, except won't backup to cloud.
