The average person wants to know: What tangible item do they get from the "cloud"? with a cd, you have a cd. with an mp3, you have an mp3 file on your hard drive. With a movie, you have a DVD, or a video file. The average person who wants to OWN something wants something tangible to OWN. Otherwise, it feels like renting, like netflix.
this will come down to how Apple implements it (restrictions? cost?), and marketing.

I think I might leave MMi until the style changes.

I hate the new website design...
I seriously doubt that Apple will allow people to stream pirated music. That is just begging for a lawsuit. Doesn't matter that google did it, because Apple is a much larger target than google for lawsuits, especially because they have contracts with various music companies.
I could also see Apple collecting everyone's pirated MP3s, and forwarding to list to the RIAA or such.

iCloud will only be used by a small fraction of the population. I don't know anyone that is willing to pay Apple twice to listen to the same song. Since there won't be a new iPhone this year at WWDC you can bet that Apple is going to be laying the sales pitch on pretty hard for iCloud and Lion.

iPhone 4 to Android directly back to iPhone 4. I learned my lesson and will never leave iOS again.
