was going to let you guys know (in case you didn't) that the iPhone iCloud for PC works great....
been using it for a while, with no problems!
lot easier than emailing pics from my iPhone to myself

I wouldn't use "the Cloud" for anything sensitive or that can't be stored on a hard copy somewhere. I just don't trust it to not fail, or people to leave it alone. I just started using Dropbox recently and will see how it goes. I won't put anything important in it, just things that will be convenient for me, e.g., blank forms and photos that I might need to have access to when I don't have my main storage. I don't like carrying thumb drives- they're too easy to lose.

I'm headed to check on dropbox----update: I like the pop-up PC notification that lets you know when the pics are synced!

It's free and if you register enough devices, they give you more storage- I think it was an extra 250MB, for a total of 5.25GB. Pretty amazing, since my old desktop that just cacked had a 14GB hard drive.

I remember back in 94......
Best Buy salesman told me that I'd never fill up my 540mb HDD :(

he lied to me:mad:

May not have lied, but he may not have known how these new-fangled things could be used.

Nor, apparently, did this person- "When the concept first came up at IBM corporate headquarters, a senior executive asked the simple question: “Why would anyone want to take a computer home with them?”

I wonder if he's still alive and how often/hard he kicks himself in the azz.

I remember our "computer guy" back in about 1988 and the excitement he had when he installed his SECOND 20 MB hard drive in his computer. That was 40 Megabytes! Also his excitement when there was a 720 kb floppy disk.

very happy with the Dropbox.!
I can take several pics throughout the day..... when I get back home, the 4S connects to the wifi and uploads them automatically to a dropbox folder on the laptop, and on their server.... I get a popup that says the pics are backed up.... good stuff! Thanks JimNhttp://deephousepage.com/smilies/thumb.gif
