iPad and iPhone Users, Listen Up! iCloud Is Coming!

apple to announce icloud

Weather prediction: Cloudy with a chance of APPLE!

Last week, we were pretty psyched to learn that Apple was close to securing deals with all four major recording companies regarding a new music service that will reportedly allow users to stream music from their computers on portable devices.

Now, we've got some more deets on Apple's upcoming storage service network, which the company is officially referring to as iCloud!

For those who haven't heard the term before, technically speaking a "Cloud" is "'anywhere' access to users' own media, documents and apps, with increasing emphasis on mobile devices."

While Google and Amazon have already launched Cloud services, Apple has been taking their time, and has been working on this service since late 2009.

There's some speculation and concern that Apple's Cloud service may have more restrictions and/or fees associated with it than the other services because of the company's determination to make explicit deals with major music labels, but they've got lots of competition, so hopefully Apple will figure all of that out before the launch!

We're def looking forward to checking out Apple's service, and one way or another, it will be interesting to see which company dominates the Cloud race!

Will U sign up for iCloud service when it's released? Or are U on Team Amazon? How about Team Google?

    It's about time that Apple got on this bandwagon; they shouldn't have let Amazon take the lead.

    I don't like or use Apple products, so I'm perfectly fine with my Amazon Cloud Player, but this'll be exciting for a good number of people.

    "Team" XXX is a very stupid expression. You are too old to be using it.

    Meh….not for me. I'll store all my own music on my own hard drive. Easily accessible and doesn't require a wi-fi connection in order to get at my files. They're simply trying to take the "Personal" out of "Personal Computer." Pass…
