Not really, because Spotify is pay for unlimited music. With iTunes you will still have to buy music (from the store, on CD, or you could get it illegally I guess) it just syncs what you've already bought.

This will be quite handy

It's a bit useless for being out and about I reckon, unless you're off on a long train journey and realised you forgot to sync ABBAs greatest hits, so you just re-download it over 3G. As long as you aren't doing it all the time, should be fine. The handy thing matching work music library with home music library.

I hope you don't need to open an @me email address for all this.

I really don't get the hype over syncing your calendar across all devices... it already does.

iCloud is out now. Update I'd imagine will be available tonight once the US wakes up. I'm gonna move over to iCloud tonight I think. Backing everything up from my MobileMe while I'm at work then will set up iCloud.

Hopefully my new phone will come on Friday. THen I won't ven have to mess about with syncing it all with the computer. Just out the box, whack my iCloud details in and it should set up the rest.

GOlden Master. The final version the developers get. It will be floating about the web. I've heard through my apple grapevine it should be available to the general public at 6pm tonight.

Too much effort. Plus I want to wait a couple of days after the release, just incase it fucks up old phones like iOS4 did.

6pm you say? I will check the twittersphere tonight and see what people think of it.

Yeah - download the file - back up phone - select file to install - waaayyyy too much effort.

I'll let you know what it's like Craig

You under estimate how lazy I am Pete.
I still haven't paid this months gas bill because I can't be bothered to wake my computer from sleep mode.

PS. Thanks.

You'll get one as part of iCloud. You can just turn it off in the settings i believe.

The update is out October 12th, so today apparently.

ps, slightly off topic. I despise programs that don't have a defined window lol, the old Microsoft visual studio used to do what Craig described, the floating window toolbar thing and it drove me nuts. Especially if you have a particularly busy background image on your system.

Hoorah. Finally got it installed. All my app organisation is messed up though.

If your having trouble getting the install to start, it's because their servers are pretty much overloaded. I just tried a few times and eventually it worked.
