My girlfriend has gone food shopping..  Which is good.  I thought I’d have a little experiment to see which supermarket she has gone to.

A quick trip to :

http://www.apple.com/icloud/setup/pc.html

And I can install the iCloud Control Panel on my laptop.  The most important bits for me during the installation were :-

a/ I had to close down Outlook.

b/ Remember/choosing the location of the Photo Stream

photostream1

Once that’s done you get an iCloud icon in Control Panel:

photostream2

And in the system tray:

photostream3

I played very briefly with the upload.  I copied a file to the Uploads folder above, and a few seconds later it appeared in the photo stream on my iPad.

 

With regards to the Find My Phone, or rather find-my-iDevice, I logged in to iCloud, and it goes and tries to locate both the iPhone, and iPad.

First try for the iPhone didn’t succeed, whereas the iPad did.  A refresh sorted out the iPhone though, and now I know exactly which supermarket my girlfriend went to.

AWESOME.
