    Remember, Photo Stream won't get updated until the iOS device is on WiFi.

    Just did a test from the office using my iPhone while watching my home machine thru VNC. Pictures showed up in less than 2 minutes on the home machine.
    Facts are the first casualty of bad information.

    Decided to see if Photo Stream deletion from within iPhoto on my iMac at home would propagate a delete. It now does so. Hadn't tested it since the last patch.

    That is really odd. I never have an issue. My only complaint was propagating deletes across all devices and now that seems to be fixed.

    I googled it earlier and someone said that if any of your devices have below 20% battery power then photo stream wont work,can anyone clarify that?

    I'll be able to test that when I use up 46% more of my iPhone battery. So probably later tonight.

    I CAN verify 100% that an iPad below 20% battery will NOT receive data from or transmit data TO Photo Stream. Had me VERY frustrated the other day when trying to take pictures with my iPhone and wanting to show them to my near blind father on my new iPad 3. Then I read like you did that under 20% battery and Photo Stream does not "propagate" to use Skull's term... :-)

    Though I have NOT been able to make a delete work as Skull said is working for him. If you turn off PhotoStream and then back on in your iPhone or iPad - the deleted items from iPhoto will REAPPEAR. Doesn't seem like they created a fool proof delete option for us. :-(

    Even if I'm doing something wrong -- still - what people asked for from Apple was a deletion from ANY iDevice would erase it from Photo Stream completely. Having to wait 'til you get home to your computer to erase it (that is even if you own iPhoto which not everyone does) is a waste of time and very "not Apple ethos" at all.

    But I'll be thrilled to even get the erasure from iPhoto propagating to iDevices to work.. ;-/
