More and more reports of the "fiasco" that is iCloud. At Macintouch, the reports of problems and limitations go on and on:
"If it works at all on a Mac, which I cannot vouch for, Apple's non-existent instructions offer no help."
"It's official...full day one and iCloud Mail kaput for many : ("
"So far, iCloud has been a fiasco for me."
And that's after the initial set-up snafus, as John Martellaro notes:
In fact, Apple has a long way to go in becoming a master of the cloud. Apple might have approached this differently if it had a history of excellence in the enterprise. But Apple’s semi-dissing of the enterprise over the years, for the sake of relentlessly moving forward in its area of expertise, means they didn’t walk the walk of the cloud — where it was hard and mission critical for the enterprise. That difficult endeavor would have provided much needed expertise that Apple could have exploited to make it easy for the consumer.
A lot of people are surprised to discover that using iCloud on a Mac requires the just-issued 10.7.2 version of OS X, while Windows users can access iCloud with Windows 7 or even Windows Vista, an almost five-year-old OS.
