Whenever I see an industry banding together to fight for some consumer "benefit", I have to wonder; why aren't the consumers the ones complaining loudly that they are missing out on something... probably because the consumers really don't care anymore and the industry is just trying to save itself from going extinct. Buh bye, radio,
Can you still upgrade the RAM yourself?  Apple doesn't show the bottom of the Mac Mini anymore on the website (that I can find) and someone else wrote they thought the new RAM type required that it was soldered and not upgradable...  Anyone?
When's the last time Apple promoted anything as being "big" or "plus-sized"? Seems unlikely...

I guess that's my point - You're having to use 3 Apple ID's to do what you want. And iCloud is moving further towards everyone having their own account for syncing their own stuff. Sharing with your own devices and yourself - not sharing with others. Unless they add some future "family iCloud folder" or something that you could assign to, say, apps.
To this I have to reply that Apple continues to move AWAY from being "family friendly". From the start of the AppleTV (and how only one person could sync their media - the rest had to stream) to iPads not having multiple "logins" - it's clear that Apple's focus is on having each person have their own device, account, etc. There's just no easy way to share apps between spouses, kids, etc. unless you share EVERYTHING (including photos and an email address).iCloud will be...
Not sure why people seem to be saying that MobileMe is causing multiple account problems... I created an Apple ID using my .Mac email address. I've used it ever since, and even though it was upgraded to MobileMe - I continue to use my .Mac email address with no problem. Purchasing in iTunes, Mac App Store, product registrations, etc. all work fine using my @mac.com address. For me it seems that @mac.com and @me.com are the same thing to Apple - Same email and ID. ...
Clearly Apple hasn't been as successful with Gallery as, say, Facebook has been with photo sharing. I think Apple realizes this and really just wants to get your photos onto your mobile devices so that you can share them on Facebook (or somewhere else) with others. I don't think we'll be deleting pictures from Photostream. It just... is. You can put photos into albums from it if you want, or just leave it be. It's only the last 1k pics, so no major storage...
I was finally able to get an iPad 2 at the Apple Store last Thursday morning. Store employee said it was the first day since launch that they'd had more vouchers (for iPad 2's) than people waiting in line. So me thinks the tide is finally turning. Suck it scalpers! I cancelled my iPad 2 online order (made March 15th) that morning, but kept my Smart Cover on order because the Apple store was sold out of red leather ones. I haven't had time to stop back and see if...
