iCloud is OK by me

Once I upgraded the trusty iPod Touch (3rd gen) to iOS 5 some time ago, I took a chance and activated iCloud. To my surprise the next time I went to the iPod's Photos app, there were over 500 very-viewable-quality shots, synced to my library in Aperture. Very nice! Today it's over 800. I haven't explored fully using iCloud yet, but so far its nice to have some key items sync up. I hear DropBox is better for heavy duty document storage, so it's worth a look, too. Seems like the future of file storage is uh, cloudy. : -)
