 No you didn't!... your model would still shut off my phone while on a bus/train/plane/car even when I'm merely a passenger.   Carplay:  1.  It would require a separate screen and carplay plug/receiver at every seat (standing?) on a bus/train/plane.  - 2.  Adoption has been slow at best... there are only a handful of car models (literally... count your fingers) where it's available now... most manufacturers are still touting several years downtime road before widespread...
So.... If I'm a passenger riding the bus, I can't text? If I'm a passenger riding a train, I can't text? If I'm a passenger on a ferry boat, I can't text? If I'm a passenger on an airplane, I can't text? If I'm a passenger in a limousine, I can't text? When I'm riding the Super Shuttle from my house to the airport, I can't text?   Your idea, while well-intentioned, is poorly thought out.
Well.... you wanted to remove the DRM, so you now have to download a new version of each of those files... makes perfect sense.   Assuming they had mentioned all this in the "fine print", would you have bothered to read it anyway?   I certainly understand the desire/need to vent... but... nothing has really gone "wrong"... you just elected to upgrade your song files to non-DRM versions so that you could play them in your truck.  That upgrade naturally involves...
I'm fairly certain that 802.11n is already faster than your internet connection.
I'm all for switching to a Mac ... but... at 85? Just make sure he understands there will be a bit of a learning curve associated with this.   I also like the idea of using a Mini (or laptop) with a standalone screen so that you can bump the resolution down and make the interface MUCH easier to read if his eyesight is not what it used to be!
Then just keep using iPhoto or Aperture. It's still on the computer and still fully functional (unless YOU deleted it)...
Having also been with "iCloud" since ".mac", I can say that I've not experienced any problems... I sync between 3 computers, 2 phones, and 3 iPads without any hiccups. (plus use the family-sharing feature with 4 other phones.)  I don't generally use web-based mail since there's a client/app on all those devices, but the few times I have used it, it works fine.   I'm not saying your problems aren't real, but they don't seem to be common to all of iCloud.  In fact, they...
It sounds like someone wanted a Phantom for xmas, but his mom got him a "mall-kiosk-copter" instead, and now he's bitter. ;)   They're not THAT hard to fly.   Should people stop buying MacbookPros because they can't create a feature film "right out of the box" without previous experience?
...not of a "disaster", no.
  huh ???
