Fixed some of my iTunes problems (syncing and crashing)
So iTunes was crashing on me all the time, I would always get stuck on step 2 of 7 while syncing. In an effort to clean up my PC, I chose to uninstall iCloud.
Everything works great now. My iPhone 4s syncs faster than any previous iPod/iPhone I've ever had, about 40 songs in a few seconds. My CPU is running at 10% (as opposed to 100% when iCloud was installed).
I haven't explored iCloud to its full capabilities, so this isn't a huge loss for me. Anyways, interesting info I thought I'd share. Sorry if it's already been posted.
