Nothing wrong with that.
I'm hoping to find some time to try the service above this week and give it a 'mini review'. Also, how Apple could (possibly) do it better. The biggest thing I like is that it uses the synced database approach across platforms. Actually, Google had this long ago with Picassa (which was purchased), but the interface is such an abomination that it's unusable, regardless of the "prying eyes" aspect of everything Google.
OT: happy to see this post notification seeing dropped into my inbox. New articles and posts from people I follow don't make it through over email anymore. I tried disabling / re-enabling it, no dice. Also changed email providers which didn't fix it. So if anyone thinks I'm being lame for not responding it could be I had no idea about your post in the first place.
Have you tried adding firstname.lastname@example.org to your (trusted) contacts, just to be sure it's not getting thrown out as spam? I have multiple mail accounts across different services, with AI added to my 20 odd year old Yahoo mail. Never have a problem.
Note: on an aside, the next thing that needs fixing across the internet is forum/website discussions and comments. The top down, static thread nature of topics and comments is becoming untenable. A thread like this one after a certain time, IMO, needs to be topically merged. So many good ideas, comments, and info... scattered haphazardly with repeated comments, opinions and often times troll-suppression... that it becomes difficult to keep tabs on it all. I do this myself by keeping good notebooks on Evernote. On more important threads than this one, such as troubleshooting tech problems, how many times have you run across answers or helpful user links to answers scattered over multiple threads? Apple Discussions forum comes to mind, which again IMHO... is a disaster. Naturally, we all know why this is probably never going to be addressed: because it's not in the financial interests of the websites, and quite the contrary. Every site wants to be "sticky", not just the.... well ya know...
