Grant Siders sends in a neat new binder clip trick:

Make iCloud Act Like Dropbox On Your Mac

Speedbump31 makes iCloud more useful for Mac users running Dropbox:

You can create your own iCloud-styled "Dropbox" by creating an alias of the ~/Library/Mobile Documents/ folder. Put it on your desktop and call it "Dropbox" (or whatever you want really).

Now, any documents you place inside of that folder will automatically be synced into all of your other Macs that use the same iCloud account.
