I just did a bit more research, and from what it appears, the perfect cloud solution just isn't there.
Have you looked at JungleDisk or any of the other Amazon S3 solutions?  I'd be curious to know where you find them failing.

I've been wondering since all this started if a class action lawsuit from a number of developers who have either:
1) Had their apps approved and then without warning removed from the App Store
2) Had apps approved that make use of the frameworks that are now 'illegal' from section 3.3.1
... would stand up in court.

I'm sure Apple's dev TOS gives them the ability to do all this, and change the rules of the game during the game, but has such an agreement really been tested?

I struggle to understand how any developer is willing to work in Apple's prison (wall-garden is too positive a name) when they show so little respect for developers as a whole and have no problem secretly killing off your business at any time even if you were following their asinine rules.

As an aside, I'm not very familiar with the various options for mobile ads, but perhaps 3.3.1 is also about pushing developers into adopting iAds over AdMob or others?

I've only been a Prime member for 1 year, and I love it except for one thing...

Because it's so convenient I've ended up placing a ton more orders, and don't take too much care to consolidate them into larger purchases.  As a result I sometimes feel guilty about the increase in my carbon/waste footprint as a result of all these smaller orders.   :-[

Though that's entirely user error and I can't think of anything Amazon can do to help. :P

I mainly use Quicken offline and my bank/credit cards' sites online.  I did try Mint once when they were starting and had problems getting it to pull my transaction data, but I'm sure that's improved.

Something to keep in mind when trialing any of these services.. be sure to research their data retention policy and the options they provide for closing your account completely.

When I left Mint I had a number of problems and the account existed for a few months even after I had tried to delete it.  I ended up changing all my passwords (to incorrect ones in Mint and new ones for the accounts) but I never felt good about it until I couldn't log in at all, and even now I wonder what traces may remain in their databases.

...once they got to the site that looked totally different than Facebook...
To be fair, Facebook changes the layout of their site more than any other that I know, and the changes tend to be more than just small tweaks as well.  They've effectively trained their users to expect nothing to be where it was the last time they used the site.
