In case anyone wants to know a way to share a photo stream between two different iCloud users and their iPhones/iPads or what not..


---------

Let's say there is a husband and wife each with an iMac and an iPhone (keep it simple).

Create three iCloud accounts
Husband - husband@me.com
Wife - wife@me.com
Family - family@me.com

On the computers and the iPhones, set up family@me.com as the iCloud account. This will enable sharing of photos (plus, anything she takes will appear on his iPhone and both computers, and vice versa). In addition, you can do something like set up a family calendar or reminders if you like. Turn email sharing off (as well as anything else you don't want shared such as reminders, calendar, contacts, etc).

Then, on the iPhone, under the mail,contact, calendar settings, add a new account. For the husband, it will be his iCloud account. He will enable to calendar, email, contacts, etc. It can also be set up on the his computer, although it looks like for some reason the calendar is having problems.

Then, the wife will do the same with her iPhone and her computer. Now they both have a iCloud email, contacts, calendar, reminder, etc that are unique and not shared, but they also have a shared photostream.

(It works better with iOS devices and not as well with the iMac. On the iOS devices, you can add an account and set up sharing of bookmarks and such - on the iMac you can only enable mail, contacts, calendar.)

I have been doing this for the past week and a half, and it works great.

Yay, I figured out a way my wife and I can share photostream across devices and computers, but still have separate email and contacts.

I still am trying to figure out exactly what to do with Google+. I like it, just not sure how to make best use of it.

I think it would be much easier to use if you could import feeds. But then, maybe there is a fun challenge there in making it relevant without all of that. My thoughts on it are still evolving.

Our new alarm system was activated yesterday. Elizabeth commented that there isn't an alarm in the dog door, so the burglars could have a dog that they send in the house. Then, in her own words, "But the dog couldn't take anything because dogs don't have opposable thumbs".

A chimp was then mentioned as a possibility.

Or maybe it's just the right combination of verbose people. I follow two people who keep up a steady stream pretty much 24/7.

Stuck on the last level of Little Big Planet 2. Very frustrating. Of course, Heather & Elizabeth mostly just want to change costumes & use stickers.

Very good customer service, very friendly, and they fully explain what is happening and needs to be done. They are also very good at identifying what "must be done" and what is an optional repair. Unfortunately it always seems like there are more repairs than anticipated, but that is the nature of having cars that are 10 years old.
