The photo galleries are an issue - I liked the integration across iPhoto and the AppleTV as well as being able to easily share password protected full-resolution galleries. I know there are alternate services and I should probably take the time to look at flikr or one of the others (suggestions welcome). iCloud 'photo stream' doesn't do it for me, and iCloud's document sync even less so.
