iCloud is official Name for Apple Cloud Services

Apple names their new cloud services iCloud as rumored.

iCloud is official Name for Apple Cloud Services
 
 

In the announcement of the WWDC 2011 keynote, Apple mentioned for the first time the term iCloud. iCloud is Apple’s upcoming cloud services offering. Reports about Apple using iCloud appeared last month when Apple was spotted buying the domain name iCloud from a Swedish company

Apple will unveil what iCloud is at the WWDC 2011. It is expected that iCloud will be comprised of mobileMe and iTunes services. It will be interesting to see how Apple is going to spin the value of moving and bundling services to the cloud. Apple has decided that cloud is a widespread enough to be understood by normal consumers. I had my doubts on that. On the one hand the term cloud is good because everybody knows what a real cloud is. It is up in the sky somewhere and there is something in it. I highly recommend listening to what Oracle CEO Larry Ellison said about cloud computing back in 2008 and 2009 to put it in a (fun) perspective. I do not think many consumers will know what the benefits and also what the risks are of using cloud services.

I am eager to see how Apple will differentiate themselves and how they would make iCloud as dominant as iTunes, or will they fail as with mobileMe. Besides iTunes I do not use any Apple service on my iPhone for instance. I use Google cloud services like Gmail and Calendar.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
