photo stream failings

Photo Stream is a great new feature in iOS 5/iCloud. It makes really great strides towards the whole PC Free situation by taking your Camera Roll online.

But it has two glaring problems:

  1. It makes the assumption that every picture taken or saved, along with all your screen grabs, deserves a place in the cloud.
  2. Given that assumption, it still provides no way to delete those one-off images individually from the stream.

This really diminishes the possible uses of Photo Stream. I’d love to throw it up as a sideshow on my Apple TV, but the experience suffers when that homescreen I shared or those images I catalogued for work pop up.

I’m looking forward to using it more once this gets addressed.
