iCloud Control Panel window on your PC
Settings App iPhone / iPod Touch settings governing sharing (iPad similar, but all on one screen)
Note with the above settings I'll be sharing my contacts, calendars, reminders, Safari bookmarks, Passbook settings, Photos and documents with my PC.
Keeping my Apple mobile devices in sync with my PC gives me added flexibility and convenience. For example, moving numerous photos from my iPod to the PC (for permanent storage) now happens automatically!
One caveat: iCloud only keeps your most recent 1000 photos in the Photo Stream. On your PC, make sure you copy the photos you want to keep to a more permanent location.
