I'm not surprised by this. When I first heard of this feature I turned it off immediately. This is the third 'connection-related' feature that I've seen Apple implement badly recently. The other two were were iCloud Photo Library and iCloud Drive. The services themselves are fine but utterly choke an Internet connection when active and are uploading recorded videos or large files. Some type of intelligent throttling should have occurred. Or Apple should have included an...

@freshmaker "The company has been pushing its supercookies on users to track everything you ever do on a phone -- every email, every page you visit, everything you click. By doing that, they were able to build a data-rich dossier and sell it to marketers." If you're comfortable with all of that information being tied to a uniquely identifiable profile linked to your account in the hands of marketers that are guaranteed not to abuse that information at some point in the...
This would never have happened if Steve (Ballmer) was still alive.
