I just logged into the me.com page (which I rarely do, IMAP-ing my email to my laptop) and was greeted by the free OS 10.6 offer. I'll take the free disc, thank-you, it may come in handy for future troubleshooting needs.

I think I only have one more website to move to a new host and I'll be done with the last things that are keeping me from embracing the iCloud... Sadly, none of my iOS devices are capable of anything higher than iOS 3.1.3

Call Apple and ask for a credit? Worst that happens is the say no.

More users doesn't mean better performance.

chas_m, do you actually USE iCloud on Lion across multiple machines? Doubtful with a response like you just made. As much as it pains me I have to agree with broad on that one from the lack of reliability I'm seeing on my setups here (currently 2 of 5 machines are "out of sync").

Lol so because a lot of people use it it automatically makes it good? does that mean windows is a good os because a lot of people use it, too?

Dude you're so out to lunch it's not even funny. Do a quick google for "iCloud sync issues" or the like. There are countless threads on the apple support forums (and elsewhere) with pages and pages of people experiencing sync troubles.

I pity the people in your little Mac user group who might actually believe the misguided and misinformed "info" that you spew
