DVDs And Blu-Rays Disappearing Into The Clouds?!

DVDs And Blu-Rays Disappearing Into The Cloud

Are you tired of having to sort through a library of DVDS and Blu-Rays that takes up more space than your entire iTunes library?

Have you thought about turning your entire collection digital?

Well, that's what Best Buy and Wal-Mart are trying to make happen- and right from the comfort of your own home!

Sure, some Wal-Marts have already begun to offer digital conversion in-store, but who wants to leave the house?

Why do they think we watch streaming in the first place? It means never having to put on pants!

Once you sign up, the stores' services will allow you to upload your films into your own digital cloud for a small fee- Best Buy is currently planning $2 for SD and $5 for HD.

That could get pricey depending on the size of your collection, but it might be worth it to be ahead of the game when your grandkids ask you, what's a DVD player?

icloud movie service coming soon

iCool!!!!!

Apple has just announced that they'll be creating a cloud service for movies, which is set to launch later this year, or in 2012.

The company's goal with this new movie-base cloud service is to allow anybody who buys iTunes flicks to access them on ANY Apple device!

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?

Watch Out, Google! Apple Securing Deal For Streaming Music With Record Labels!

Filed under: Music MinuteTech Talk

apple-securing-deal-for-streaming-music-with-record-labels

We assumed it would only be a matter of time before they jumped on this bandwagon!

A source close to Apple has revealed that the company is close to securing deals with all four major recording companies about a new music service that will reportedly allow users to stream music stored on computers to portable devices, to avoid one having to use up storage space and connect devices to transfer songs!

According to the insider, the deal - with Universal, Sony, EMI Group, and Warner Brothers - will allow for 'downloading, mobile use and streaming,' and will officially be announced at the Apple annual developers' conference on June 6th!

Uh-oh! We wonder what this will mean for the Google and Amazon cloud music plans!

Either way, it sounds like all three projects will ultimately help get us get our music faster AND easier, so we're pretty psyched!

What do U think?? Are U looking forward to more stream-based tunez??
