Apple designs Macs, the best personal computers in the world, along with OS X, iLife, iWork and professional software. Apple leads the digital music revolution with its iPods and iTunes online store. Apple has reinvented the mobile phone with its revolutionary iPhone and App Store, and has recently introduced iPad 2 which is defining the future of mobile media and computing devices."

Although many are now anticipating this latest innovation, we still don’t know what truly it is and what it is capable of bringing.

iCloud could be the mythical iTunes streaming service or Apple’s version of DropBox, the amazing sync and storage service that currently glues together the whole iOS ecosystem along with its desktop service, or it could be yet another abortion of an Internet service, like Mobile Me, iDisk and Ping before it.

Let's wait and see...
