iOS 5.0 finally PC free

Apple have just announced at the WWDC that iOS 5 will finally allow all iOS devices to be completely PC free. You will no longer need to own a PC or Mac to setup and sync your iPhone, iPad or Touch devices. Apple have also announced their iCloud system that is of course the essential back end to enable wireless sync. I've been predicting this for some time now. I really don't understand why industry watchers seem so surprised. As Apple keep saying we're in a "post-PC world" now, requiring you to own a PC just to initialise your iPad is daft. Now the cord can be cut.
