Apple's iCloud Gives PCs The Cold Shoulder

Apple's iCloud Gives PCs The Cold Shoulder

Apple has been toying with the idea of relegating the PC over the past few years, and that idea has possibly come to fruition with the launch of their latest iCloud service. With iCloud, users need not have to rely on a PC to sync or backup files with their Apple iOS mobile devices. The cloud service automatically syncs photos, videos and music, including iBooks and app data as well.

The New York Times - If Steven P. Jobs, Apple’s chief executive, gets his way, the PC could be on its last legs. For over two years now, Mr. Jobs and other Apple executives have been pushing the concept of a “post-PC era” where most people no longer have, or need, traditional computers and instead engage with the digital world though iPhones, iPods and iPads.

The service isn't free though, for Apple's iCloud will require a $25 annual subscription fee after the trial period is over. More on this story here.
