From Apple web site:

"Cloud stores your music, photos, documents, and more and wiressly pushes them to all your devices.* It’s automatic, effortless, and free with iOS 5."

This is all OK, Except - how do I control 'push' only to iPad. iPhone or iPod Touch? For example, I don't want my iPad movies on my iPhone, etc.
