Initial reports of the rollout of Apple's new iCloud? Less than smooth.
People all over the Twitterverse are complaining of email outages after downloading iCloud, Apple's brand new cloud-based service that allows you to get your media and mail on all your PC and Apple devices, wherever you go.

University of Pennsylvania Professor David Farber, keeper of the famed Interesting People mailing list, was even more blunt:
I have found the iCloud performance to be very bad. Looks like either they miss guessed the load or the capacity of their distributed system or their software is in deep mud
Basically near unusable

Update: Farber added later that the problem may have related to mail filters.
