Bradley Chambers, over at Chambers Daily, wrote a post about what Apple needs to change regarding photo backup and storage. Apple is very profitable, and probably could do things like offer a terabyte to everyone, but I don’t think they have that responsibility. I think the idea of allowing as much iCloud storage as device space makes a lot of space, unless perhaps you include Macs in that equation.
Currently, the issue Chambers brings up isn’t a major problem for me, for the following reason: when I take a picture on my iPhone, my Mac imports the photo from Photo Stream to its photo library. Windows machines are likewise capable of this.
I don’t want Apple to maintain a library of every picture or screenshot I’ve taken. I simply want them to facilitate the transfer of those pictures between my devices.
