Ah, some Apple love at long last! Apple is rumored to launch photo sharing features on the next upgrade for the iCloud at the June WWDC. iCloud is a cloud computing service that allows users to access their files anywhere at any time. Much like rest of the cloud based services, Apple is hoping to grow and improve their service. As of now, you can get 5GB free when you first sign up for the service.
Wall Street Journal claims that this new feature will be another attempt at them making their own social network of sorts. While nothing has been confirmed yet, Apple has been known seeking for new ways to expand into social media. The feature would allow users to comment and view their friends photos who share them. The event kicks off in San Francisco on June 11th.
I have to say that I hope they can make it work. While I am not a fan of cloud based storage, I do think that they could be on a path to landing their own social network. It could become the next Facebook, thanks to all of the fans of Apple out there. I suppose only time will tell us for a fact about what will happen, but it does look like a hopeful start for them.
Do you use any cloud services? If so, which one and what do you like about it? I only use Google Docs and I do love it. But I use that more as an office suite than anything else. However, I am tempted to try iCloud! Apple sure knows how to sell itself to me and I am sure I could find some usefulness for it one way or another. I just don’t think I will store anything vital on it by a long shot.
