A week ago a report raised the question if the iCloud will roll-out without web facing interfaces. Apple did not announce or demo web interfaces for the iCloud, but I already argued back then that this is no reason that they would not be there.
Today TechCrunch spotted a FAQ about the transition for mobileMe users to the iCloud. In this FAQ Apple answers directly this question:
Will I be able to access iCloud services on the web? Yes. Web access to iCloud Mail, Contacts, Calendar, and Find My iPhone will be available at icloud.com this fall.
So there you have it. Of course the iCloud has web front ends. If you happen to be a mobileMe user you will be happy to find out that you can keep your email address. What Apple will discontinue is hosting websites. iWeb publishing is not going to be a feature of the iCloud. iWeb users have until June 30, 2012 to transfer their site to another host. Also gone will be iDisk.

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.
