WWDC 2011, not so exciting after all

Apple’s WWDC keynote gave Steve Job’s the opportunity to show off the new MacOS X, the new iOS and the iCloud service, none of which seem to be all that exciting.  I was left with more questions than answers after the show.  Here’s just a few of them:
  • If Lion is a download only install from the App Store, how do I go about rebuilding a broken machine which doesn’t have an OS?
  • How much control do I have for my iCloud sync settings.  There are things I only want on my iPad and other things I only want on my iPhone.  Do I have to have all things on all devices now?
  • iCloud is free now, what about in two years after it become the center of my Apple ecosystem?  I remember e-mail for life from Apple, mostly because I’m paying for MobileMe now.  Will this be another, “yeah it’s free… for now.” deal?
I’m sorry but this wasn’t really a wow-that’s-neat talk for me.  I’m glad to see computer-less iPad functionality but I’m not quite sure I’m ready to be assimilated into Apple’s cloud just yet.
