    i can say for iPhone, itunes wont let you go from iPhone --> laptop... However, 3rd party itunes like applications can do it. Only issue is that you may need to relabel the songs again.

    I didnt realize that my computer needed to keep a copy of the music, so i deleted them and when itunes wanted to sync because i wanted to add new songs, it would need to copy over my library which basically had nothing in it. I ended up using media monkey to pull off the music.

    as for iCloud, i believe iCloud will update your photos, notes, contact list, and calender but nothing on music.

    I had the debate on iPhone or SGIII. I really dont want to repurchase all my apps again so im gonna stick with the iPhone. Besides, with an iPad and Macbook, the syncing comes in handy...

    iTunes will let you re-download purchased songs now but I honestly haven't messed around with the iCloud that much. Unlimited downloading of purchases is great but it only gets you so far if a large percentage of your media library comes from CD rips or other sources.

    They are about 2 years late on that idea and all my media is already backed up to another Cloud server so I just haven't gotten around to looking at the new iCloud features.

    I think iTunes Match found about 80-90% of my music (which is like 14,000 tracks). Many of those came from CDs.
