In all my excitement to get with the iCloud experience I have shifted my contacts into iCloud and have it all syncing between my MacBook Air and my iPhone. Previously I synced my MacBook and my iPhone with Google Contacts through the Exchange integration and it worked most of the time (I often found contacts disappearing out of my contacts lists).
It occurred to me that I may have been a little hasty making the switch because my Google Contacts are no longer updating as I add new contacts. On the other hand, iCloud seems to work pretty well although I am a little unsure how to make sure that all contacts I add to Address Book sync with iCloud and don’t just stay local.
Does it make a difference where my contacts are, ultimately, as long as they sync between my devices or is this iCloud thing just a bit of a fad?
