Apple Introduces iCloud
Well it was an inkling in the air and now it is here, Apple's version of cloud based computing appropriately termed iCloud. What else would it be called. The service was unveiled in the wake of the dismantling of the mobile me system that charged users 99 dollars and really wasn't all that great. One notable feature of the new and free iCloud service is that users can sync content across devices automatically. This means that when you download a song it appears not only on the device you downloaded it to but all the other Apple gadgets you own. Apple is known for seamless integration among applications within its devices such as a phone number that can be tapped within the maps application to initiate a phone call. Now that integrative genius is available outside devices. This article in USA Today gives the details of the new service.
