Implications of iCloud

My wife told me that the photos I took at my brothers party in the UK last weekend automatically populated onto my iPad which was at home in Cork that same evening. just as well I was behaving

For me personally its a huge bonus that photos will stream home, I can see some interesting situations arising from iCloud in the future.......

I think the inability to do something as basic as deleting photos from the cloud on the users terms, not apple's is something thats seriously lacking.

Occasionally I get the urge to do a bit of talent spotting with me iPhone. Sticky situation with the missus as these opened in her browser on our home networked computer and I had to explain away the tit and bum shots a obviously the shutter stuck or something.

I usually save these art pieces to my private folder before the networks shares but the iCloud will be responsible for bringing couples closer together for sure.

I'm thinking of disabling iCloud for this reason. I gave up the previous paid for version MobileMe and it had more user control, but it's not something I think I like ~ it's like one's mind being made public sort of.

Thats an oversight being corrected in iOS 5.1 according to the developer previews.

Another way around this on the iPad would be if they brought in multiple user accounts on the iPad.

So when you wake the device you choose what account and put in pass code.

I can see them bringing in this feature when the entry level iPad has 64GB memory. Probably 2 generations away at least.

I don't. The iPhone and iPad are intended to be personal devices.

The music app is now unusable on my iPhone. When I play music it is constantly streaming the music from the cloud. When I am out walking the music stops and starts as it can't download he music quick enough.

Is there any way to switch it off. On a tempory basis or to only allow streaming over wifi.

If you got to Settings>Store and turn "Use Cellular Data" off, iTunes match will only work over wifi
