Therefore, the amount of space allotted to your backups is fully in your control.

Last week, I came across Kyle Vanhemert's story for Wired about the iPad and pondered, with a bit of fascination and surprise, his conclusion that “nobody knows what the iPad is good for anymore”.

In particular, two arguments from the piece stood out to me. First, Vanhemert argues that iPhone software is unequivocally superior to iPad apps: An iPad might still be the best option for idly surfing around the web. But if you want to look something up, the iPhone has a huge advantage: It’s right there in your pocket.
