I believe the main uses are:
1) Backup of i devices
2) Storage of music, video, TV etc. bought through iTunes or matched using the match feature
3) Storage of data in applications on i devices I.e. Pages and numbers
4) Sorage of pictures taken on iPhones (photo streaming) which are on the iphone camera roll. They automatically appear on iPads, PCs and Macs.
I do not believe that it is for storage of absolutely all data. I tend to use it mainly for keeping calendars in one place on my iPhone and iPad and for storing a copy of of other data on my iPad/iPhone.
We get occasional calls from people who have lost data stored in the icloud (I'm sure others have issues too, just not come across them yet) but it's usually limited to the odd picture or contact. That said, I'd always do a "local" backup every once in a while anyway if stuff is important.
I use iCloud to back up our phones and iPads. I also use the photostream option, but I do not save documents in it nor have I activated iTunes Match which I think keeps your music in the cloud too and makes it available to all your devices. I've had no problems with it. (Makes setting up new iPhones/iPads a doddle.)
And dont forget www.icloud.com for grabbing a contact or email etc while out and about with no idevice on you.
Also (one of the most useful aspects) find my iPhone/iPad/Mac, very useful :thumbs:
especially if you have lost your phone down the back of the sofa and can't find it - just set to to ring from a computer
One of my monitors at home has gone kaput (the screen is now a not very fetching shade of pink), so I shall need to replace it - any thoughts or recommendations?
Requirements are fairly standard, it needs to connect via my laptop using either an HDMI or VGA cable and should be about 22" in...
This is purely speculation, but I believe there is merit in my analysis. It stems from the figures obtained wrt Lambda readings. I do not want to have to spend a lot of money, re- calibrating my AFR by way of expensive software modifications.
So I have been investigating wide - band Lambda...
For a good few years I have paid for my domain and hosting but, since retirement, my demands have changed and I no longer need this. What I now need is a good, free host where I can store some images which I may link to for posting in forums. At the moment I'm leaning to Imgur but any...
So Is anyone using a home CCTV system?
I've avoided these things so far as I don't like running wires around the house and I think the cameras look ugly and I would never be arsed to pick up my phone if it keeps false-alerting due to a car walking across the garden etc - but I do understand...
