I can get a really cheap price on a refurbed iPhone and I could give up some beer for the data plan. An iPad would be my preference too, but I have to be really cost conscious about the initial cost. I haven't seen iPad 2s in the Apple refurb area yet.
I'm wondering what will become of Back to My Mac. Haven't had time to read anything yet. I have customers that travel a lot and use the Screen Sharing and File Sharing.
Never used or read up on Back to my Mac but I'm wondering if iCloud won't take care of that?
With icloud, you sign in to the store on your device and everything is there. It says on new devices or one you want to restore. So not sure if that is just for mobile devices or macs too. And if that would work on other macs...but then I can see it overwriting the other person's stuff.
Ok, quick search on Apple's site about back to my Mac and I think it's about being able to get files off your Mac on another Mac?
