Steve Jobs — all hail the Apple King — will make another public appearance! From Bloomberg:
Apple Inc. Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs will make a public
appearance June 6 to unveil a cloud-computing product and a new version
of the operating system that powers its iPad, iPhone and iPod touch
Jobs, who the company said Jan. 17 would take his
third medical leave since 2004 to battle a rare form of cancer, will
deliver a keynote address at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference,
the Cupertino, California-based company said in a statement today.
Apple Inc., the largest U.S. music retailer, has
reached agreements with three major record labels to let users of its
new music service access their song collections from handheld devices
via the Internet using the so-called cloud, people with knowledge of the
deals said this month. Apple would follow Google Inc. and Amazon.com
Inc. in letting users stream music from the cloud instead of downloading
it to a hard drive.
Are you excited for the cloud? Do you even know that the cloud is? Will it be better than the Microsoft cloud that’s in all those weird commercials? One thing’s for sure: It will probably look nicer (if a cloud can have a look) and will be more expensive!
