Agreed, I use cloud computing so much that I can't wait for the day when my iPad is just a dumb terminal. Yea we still have a while to go before we get there but as an owner of a Chromebook we're getting closer. Jolicloud is a pretty good example of a company who gets it.
Though I like iCloud and I'm very happy that Apple is finally in the game it still has a long way to go before I would use it exclusively. First thing that needs to happen is Apple should raise their free storage size, 5GB is just silly when every one else is offering 25GB to 50GB, checkout Skydrive or BOX for instance. Skydrive is great for your Office docs needs, even if you use iCloud exclusively you should really open up an account, it's free. The online Office apps are just so cool, I save all my Mac Office stuff their, not to mention the sharing functions are out of this world great, especially for collaboration projects.
My favorite cloud site so far though is Asus's Webstorage, it offers unlimited storage for only 50 bucks a year, 2GB filesize upload limit which is incredible. I have 420GB on it so far, mostly movies, music, eBooks and my daily backups. It also does everything iCloud does and more, including being much faster in uploading data, much faster. iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows 8 apps are also available and before you say just more crap that's not Apple, when you upload a movie in Divx or Mp4 format it will convert it on the fly for watching it on their website using Flash or HTML5 or threw your favorite video player. These are the kind of features that I want, not to mention having a really great Doc and Excel editor from Zoho right there on the site, plus eBook and Music player with playlist support as well. There are many more features but i think you get the point.
Exciting times we are living in guys and it's just going to get better. Sorry if I blabbered on to much, I get that way when I'm excited about certain tech.
