My friends love to give me notifications on fb....I can not wait for iOS 5 with the new Notification Center, and iCloud is just icing on the delicious icecream cake! :)))

This is filling, I believe, much-needed redundant support , especially for business users. Not all apps sync with Evernote or Google, and being able to pull down backed-up data out of the cloud in the event of (heaven forbid) unplanned loss of critical data is a great thing. Interesting to watch Apple slowly but surely accomodate business people.

Release iOS 5 already! Sheesh! What's the hold up?

Developer says:

I don't expect to see iOS 5 released as an update until well after the iPhone 5 is shipping.
