    iCloud with Mac and PC
    Does anyone know whether or not you can sync a PC and a Mac to iCloud at the same time so that photos are synced with the iPad/iphone and Mac while calendar and reminders are sync'd with PC/outlook via MS exchange?

    Also is it possible to select what syncs to each iOS device so that the iPhone syncs some things where as the the iPad doesn't

    How does mail work if you are running an exchange account and gmail on the iPhone but only gmail on the iPad?

    You can. You need to get the iCloud add-on for Windows (Vista and 7 only) and install that first. You also need at a minimum MS Office 2007 for the email/calendar/tasks functions to work. Photo Stream can also be setup in Windows and it will dump the pictures in your users picture folder.

    As far as different syncing on your iOS devices you just need to turn off what you don't want on the iPad or iPhone via the settings for iCloud on each device.

    I know about the rqmts for windows but I am unsure whether you can selectively setup 2 computers in iCloud to link with the same apple ID and same device?
