iCloud with multiple devices
i have an iPhone 4, wife has a 3gs, and my son has a iPod touch 4th gen. do i need to create an iCloud acct for each device? or will it backup each device seperately on the same iCloud acct?

As long as you keep each device with a different name, you can individually upload separate backups to the same account. Keep in mind that all backups will then subtract from your iCloud storage space.

Are you doing this for the simplicity of purchases or what? If you set up and account for each you won;t have to share storage space... Just an FYI!"Life is tough, but it's tougher when you're stupid." - John Wayne iPhone 6 Plus Space Gray (64GB) iPad Mini White (16GB) Mid 2014 MacBook Pro

Yea for now its a bit of a hassle. Im sure Apple will allow specific profiles and restrictions for devices in a later iOS version (iOS 6?). Surely it will be done very tastefully as always and hopefully retains it Apple simplicity with Steve gone...but yea i think other post solved your question, im just always speculating. I should be a analyst gosh darn it.
