iCloud Therefore i[insert witty verb]

Apple announced at WWDC that its new iCloud service will be launching this Fall along side iOS 5.  First of all, iCloud, which I just added to my Firefox dictionary, will accomplish a number of massively needed things for the Apple ecosystem.  Many of the new features of iOS 5 and some of OS X Lion will rely on the new iCloud service for over the air backups, apps, music, books, photos, email, contacts, calendars and documents.  Apple is killing its paid MobileMe offering and launching iCloud services for free.  Lets have a quick glance over a couple of key features!
