OS X Lion, iOS 5, and iCloud Confirmed as Apple Subjects for WWDC Opening Keynote

This year on the 6th of June, here in sunny San Francisco at the Worldwide Developers Conference 2011 (WWDC), we saw no less than Steve Jobs step on stage with his classic jeans and sweatshirt outfit. "We've got an awesome morning together, this morning. Thank you for coming so much." Steve was glad to welcome every one of the 5,200 attendees to the conference, a number that sold out in under 2 hours. He goes on to confirm exactly what we've been expecting: "We've got some great stuff to talk about: OS X Lion, iOS 5, and some kind of interesting new cloud stuff."

Apple's new iCloud service may cost users $25/year - after a whet-your-appetite free trial - according to the latest rumors, but the company itself has reportedly had to open its wallet a whole lot wider in order to keep the labels happy.

Apple Time Capsule refresh with iCloud inside?

I mentioned yesterday that there are some shortages of Apple gear in some locations and online. The shortages were for some of the Apple Airport devices and the Time Capsule unit.

A source has tipped 9to5Mac that the Airport Express supply is plentiful in most places, but the supply of the Time Capsule and Airport Extreme are in fact very tight globally.

Apple’s iCloud Trademark Filing in Europe Timed Flawlessly

As you MAY have heard multiple times, Apple very obviously plans on releasing information on their new "iCloud" service in the very near future (aka WWDC.)

Apple iTunes iCloud Music Service Might Not Launch At WWDC?

Apple's much anticipated cloud-based iTunes music service, possibly dubbed iCloud, is ramping up for an imminent reveal, but will it be during next month's WWDC developer conference?

We have been talking about a new cloud offering from Apple for a while now that would have something to do with music playback.

After seeing Apple TV would get some needed love from YouTube, as well as some new channels, there is a lot more to discuss.

Facebook’s Zuckerberg takes swipe at Apple, overpriced products

In the wake of Apple’s iCloud security issues, CEO Tim Cook released a statement that said, in part, “when an online service is free, you're not the customer. You're the product.” In an interview with Time magazine, Facebook’s boss, Mark Zuckerberg, has a retort for that. With Facebook ramping up their own ad network, Zuck has taken offense to Cook’s comments, and challenges that Apple is who’s really out of touch with consumers. His proof? Your expensive iPhone.
