You don’t buy a Kindle just to enjoy the dictionary and manual that come pre-installed on the device. You shouldn’t buy an iPhone to enjoy only free apps, either. You’re cheating yourself, all because we’ve become conditioned to feeling that $5 is a lot to spend on an app. It’s okay to pay for good products.Macworld
The only time I ever hesitate in paying for an app is to decide "do I need this"? Cheapskates are really starting to bug me. To me it feels disrespectful; suggesting that developers aren't worth much.
Andy Ihnatko [writing in MacWorld](http://www.macworld.com/article/160933/2011/07/ihnatko_icloud_macbook_air.html) suggest that iCloud is more than just a replacement for MobileMe.
> It’s so very clear to me now that just as Superman is the living ideal of Truth, Justice, and the American Way, the 11” [MacBook] Air is the tangible ideal of iCloud. You grab it when you leave the office and that’s it. No syncing, no updating, no need to trust that you’ll find WiFi when you get to where you’re going: iCloud kept your iCloudBook’s files up-to-date as you were updating them on your iMac so you’re already good.
