Icloud trying to get my head around it

Mind you, I see no reason to have everything on the iPhone and iPad. I prefer to select what I need on the various devices.
Does anyone know any more about this?

But, as we've been discussing on another thread, there doesn't appear to be any iDisk/Dropbox like locker to dump files that don't come from supported apps - ie, you can't store other random files on iCloud (at present). Apple's opened up the iCloud Backup platform for third-party developers to integrate into their own apps, so we're likely to see the integration of other files in the future. However, if you listen to what Apple said at the keynote address, it doesn't look like there's going to be anything like Dropbox. It wants to concentrate on the files being available across a number of devices seamlessly rather than organising them yourself...
iTunes Match will let you store music that's not already on the iTunes store (for a fee), although we've had absolutely zero word as to when that's going to become available locally.
