Help me understand iCloud
I am having major issues trying to sort out the new features.
In order to share contacts and calendars, multiple devices have to use the same iCloud login.
In order to use Find my Friends, each device/person must use a unique iCloud login.
I set up iCloud and my contacts synched across multiple devices almost instantly.
No matter what I do, my MacBook Pro insists on synching calendars with MobileMe and won't give 'em up for iCloud.
Can anybody help me understand this mess?

Ok, I think I got the calendar synching now. I encountered several errors and the error explanation seemed to indicate what everyone knows - the entire Apple eco-system has been slammed since about 10 am PDT.
Thanks for the help...
Now about the Find My Friends, us this mutually exclusive with iCloud? It appears that in the case of family members/devices, I can use the Find My Phone feature of iCloud... is that about it?
What happens if we have 6 devices and I share my location via Find My Friends with someone? If we're all using the same iCloud account (for sharing contacts/calendars, etc), does my friend see ALL of my devices?
