Apple Time Capsule refresh with iCloud inside?

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. Generally, a shortage of things in Apple Stores is a good indication that a refresh is imminent and with WWDC kicking off soon perhaps, the shortages mean new products being unveiled. 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.) What you may NOT know is that they, just yesterday, filed the name iCloud with the European Trademark Office under application 010011484. This trademark was filed under 12 distinct International Classes including all of the following headers: digital music by telecommunications, electronic storage, online social networking services, multimedia content for a fee or pre-paid subscription, computer software, electronic books and magazines, entertainment, photographic services, business management and advertising services, games, headgear and digital devices/computers.

I Trust the Cloud – Do You?

I Trust the Cloud – Do You?

In my predictions column prior to 2011, I predicted the rise of the personal cloud. With Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Apple all getting into the cloud business its clear that prediction is coming true. Three things are key to adopting these cloud services: Trust, reliability and price.

I for one am ready to begin relying more on cloud services. I remember a time before my company began using Exchange for email. Every time I got a new computer or new handheld PDA, I had to manually export my inbox and then import it on the new device.

What the folks at 9to5mac are calling a source with some previous success has passed them, and therefor the world, some information about the upcoming iCloud in the form of an educational discount. Apple has been more than ready to offer discounts to students in the past (I myself have partaken in such a bounty more than once,) so this sort of deal certainly isn't out of the question. Apple's ties to schools have been what you and I know to be an integral part of their past - here's hoping they'll stick to the plan for the future.

Apple iCloud To Offer Movies, TV Shows At Launch?

Apple, in an unusual move, confirmed the agenda for their upcoming WWDC developer conference to include the iCloud, iOS 5, and OS X Lion. Although it seems like they just killed some of the mystery and magic for the event, there's still so much unknown about the iCloud that it keeps us anxious and the rumor mills cranking. The latest claims suggest that the iCloud could serve up not only music, but also movies and TV shows.
