I HIGHLY "HIGHLY!" RECOMMEND THAT YOU READ THE TERMS OF SERVICE WHEN SIGNING UP FOR iCLOUD. There is some seriously freaky stuff in there. I for one, did not agree, and will not use the service.

Can you expand on this or are you just that guy that says stuff like that? Curious what it was that you came across that caused your reaction

It's funny I was just trying to find and old post and found your comment. I don't subscribe to these which is why I never replied. At any rate, my online names origin comes from the Commodore 64 :P @Curious As for why I said to read the terms of service and didn't elaborate, it's because I was hoping people would actually READ IT. The "freaky" stuff I think I was referring to was the complete lack of privacy and the viewing and monitoring of your private content that you upload to the iCloud. And the fact that if you delete something they still have the files. To be honest it was so if you or anyone reading this hasn't read it yet, you might want to. It certainly wasn't something I was going to agree to, and they're betting most people wont read it.
