Apple iCloud could be MobileMe bundle, mirror even pirated tracks

With Apple's WWDC 2011 just weeks away, the race is on to finalize the expected cloud music streaming system - aka iCloud - for an official debut at the keynote. According to BusinessWeek, Apple is still yet to clinch Universal Music's agreement, though a deal is said to be close; the terms are believed to include the ability to scan a user's local music collection and then recreate it in cloud storage from high-quality master recordings, even - it's said - if some of the tracks were originally obtained illegally, as part of a broadened MobileMe subscription.

Apple iCloud May Serve More Than Music

Last week we reported that Apple was ahead of Google in launching a cloud music service, a digital locker of sorts that would allow users to store and stream their iTunes music.

Apple now allows everyone to create, save files in iCloud

Apple now allows everyone to create, save files in iCloud

One of the things Apple had working against them when it came to creating files for use in the cloud was actually creating files in the cloud itself. Though you could save a Pages document or presentation made via Keynote in iCloud, creating one via iCloud.com wasn’t really a thing. Until now. Today, Apple is rolling out file creation in iCloud, all via a browser. Now, you don’t even need access to an OS X or iOS device to use Pages, Keynote, or Numbers.

Apple Photos hands-on: Yosemite’s iCloud-loving image app

Goodbye iPhoto, hello Photos. Apple has revealed a new, cloud-centric photo management and editing app for OS X Yosemite, recognizing the changing ways people take and organize photos, and the rise of the smartphone camera. Built completely afresh, Photos is set to be baked into OS X Yosemite 10.10.3, due for release this spring, but will be offered in the developer build from today.
