iCloud goes live

Marc Sanchez Oct 12, 2011

Starting today, Apple users can go to and begin their new life in the cloud. Store documents using the iWork applications, add or change contacts, even find your phone if it’s missing. You do need to earn your place in the brave new cloud world by updating to Apple’s Lion operating system and having your phone run the iOS 5, the latest version of the mobile operating system which also launches today. But once there you can do it all and enjoy the 5gb of free storage space. You’ll be straight up Lando Calrissian*, yo.

  • He’s the administrator of the cloud city of Bespin in Empire Strikes Back, of course.
