iCloud is the New iTunes, Not the New MobileMe

Daring Fireball’s John Gruber has posted his thoughts on the upcoming iCloud service predicting that it will be more of a replacement to iTunes than MobileMe.

Gruber suggests that the new iCloud service may finally free iDevices from the need to connect to iTunes for setup or syncing.

Gruber also lists a few features that he hopes Apple will improve in iOS 5 such as: App Switching, iPad Split Views, and App Organization. He points to a video (below) of an Expose like feature for app switching that was rumored to be coming out in iOS 4 but never did.
