iCloud has what it takes to switch from using GMail and Calendar.
Apple unveild today the iCloud at the WWDC 2011. The new iCloud service will replace mobileMe and include iTunes in the cloud. Apple's iCloud will automatically and wirelessly store your content in iCloud and automatically and wirelessly push it to all your devices. When anything changes on one of your devices, all of your devices are wirelessly updated almost instantly.
MobileMe never tempted me. I was used to Google's services before I got an iPhone and an iMac. The iCloud offers a fully integrated and comprehensive cloud service that happens to be free as well. I can stay in the user interface of Apple and not have to switch back and forth between Google's interface language and Apple's. iCloud, iOS and OS X will be offering a seamless experience. I predict that Google will lose tons of Gmail users that own Apple devices come this fall.
Apple's iCloud not only offers services like email and calendaring, but also file syncing and of course iTunes in the cloud. I did not expect more or less from what Apple has announced today for the iCloud. iCloud is set for the right start.

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.
