At the risk of adding to an already too long list of i-puns, I’ve got one more:  “iCloudy.”

In theory, Apple’s cloud-based data storage system (and successor to problem-plagued MobileMe) represents the Holy Grail of  “whenever, wherever” access to personal data.

In practice, well . . . .

After two weeks — and multiple trips to Apple’s “Genius Bar” — all I have to say is, it ain’t working (yet) as advertised.

So, appointments I enter on my iPhone don’t make it to my iMac, client addresses that I add to my iMac don’t show up on my iPhone, etc., etc.

And yeah, it does make you kind of iCrazy having to spend time getting it all straightened out (though that’s not the kind of iCrazy Newsweek was talking about).
