“Apple devices can be addictive: People buy one tiny iPod, fall in love, and end up with three or four other Apple products. Now if only they could see all their data on all those devices simultaneously,” Katherine Boehret reports for The Wall Street Journal. “Starting today, they can.”
“iCloud is designed to store and replicate documents, music, apps and 1,000 photos on [Macs], PCs, the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad,” Boehret reports. “It also syncs contacts, calendars and email so all your machines and devices have the same data and content. It will back up five gigabytes of data, but certain types aren’t counted against that total. The best part: It’s free.”

Over the weekend, I imported 300 photos my parents took on a recent trip to Italy, forgetting that my computer was set up with iCloud.
