I'd rather pay for more storage space than have to deal with needing to worry about connecting to the internet and streaming from my iTunes account just to listen to a song.
And needing to put up with the constant internet connection failures too. I can just imagine, "buffering" pauses 3-5 times in one song. Not to mention the lower audio quality from streaming too, as a compensation for slow internet speeds.
In addition to that, you, the user, are no longer in control of your own content. Rather, you paid for content that is remotely being stored on Apple's servers and you need to "borrow" it whenever you want to access it. Which essentially means you don't have full control over your content even though you purchased it. If Apple felt like it they can delete your rights to streaming from the "cloud" for whatever reason.

Heh...I've noticed. This is the first thread I've seen about a cloud where there is positive feedback.Edited by kiwiasian - 5/21/11 at 8:48pm
