A couple of changes Site News
A couple of changes I'm making or considering: first, the category 'iPhone' is now 'iOS Devices.' Hints related to iOS itself, iOS apps, plus iPhone/iPad/iPod touch hardware go into this area. I'll go back and re-categorize older hints as I get the chance.

It has been proposed that a new category be created for iCloud related hints. Please post in the comments if you would prefer that or just keep it in the 10.7 or iOS areas, as applicable. I'm not sure I have a great preference one way or the other, so I'm looking for feedback on it.

Thanks, Craig A.

P.S. I see that the blue descriptive text by the iPhone icon has not changed; that still says 'iPhone.' The menu used to submit hints is now changed. I'll change the descriptor as soon as I spot where in the database that lives.

I don't think you'll find that descriptor in the database. That text that says "iPhone" is included in the graphic.

How about a tag-based approach instead of pigeonholing? Just one example: Facetime runs on both iOS and MacOSX, so tag Facetime hints "Facetime".

While adding tags to the database might be a major undertaking, i think this is definitely the way to go in the long run. rather than spend time on creating a new category, i recommend just leaving things the way they are, and put iCloud comments in the pigeonhole they most closely relate to until you have a tagging system in place.

Seconded. Allowing for multiple tags makes waaay more sense than trying to squeeze each hint into one slot.

I'm casting my vote for tags.

I like the idea of adding the tags but in the meantime adding an iCloud category. Without tags right now if it is iCloud based then it is much easier to search for it under that category IMHO than searching in Facebook, or Cal, or Contacts…

an iCloud category would make a lot of sense. I'm in favor of it.

Please make an iCloud section as it's pertinent to both iOS 5 & Lion.
