Apple today launched its cloud services portal iCloud.com to the public.
Previously available only in beta form to developers, the updated site is now available to all iCloud users, allowing them to share content across multiple devices. The site features icons for the Notes and Reminder apps that sync with their iOS and Mac counterparts, as well as Find My Phone and iWork on a Mountain Lion-like background.

As spotted by 9to5mac this morning, Apple's testing two alternate versions of its iCloud Web site for developers -- one called "beta" and one called "dev" -- that adds those two iOS apps in Web app form.
In order to use the beta version of that site, Apple notes that users must have a developer account, though developers have noticed that … Read more

Ahead of a full release this fall, Apple has pushed the Web front end to iCloud live for developers to kick the tires on.
The new site, which resides at iCloud.com, features a similar front-end to Me.com, which will be shuttered next year with Apple's MobileMe service. Visitors can view Web e-mail, manage contacts, view and edit calendar events, and access the Find My iPhone tool. A new entrant to the bunch is a Web app for iWork, which outlines iCloud's file storage for documents created in Apple's Keynote, Pages and Numbers iOS applications.

Could the fruits of Apple's recent purchase of the iCloud.com domain already be showing up as a new cloud-based music service in the latest build of its upcoming Mac OS X Lion?
Following Apple's latest release of its Lion Developer Preview last Friday, French tech site Consomac.fr (Google Translate Version) spotted a reference to a hidden feature in the build codenamed "Castle," to which users can supposedly migrate their existing MobileMe accounts. Seeing this as evidence of a new major cloud-based initiative, the site believes Castle will include MobileMe, indicating that the new project … Read more
Cloud.com--which until now was known as VMops--is launching on Tuesday the latest salvo in the battle for cloud computing adoption and mindshare as it releases a new product and changes its name.
In addition to rebranding the company as Cloud.com, the company is releasing the latest version of its CloudStack software under both open-source and commercial licenses. (Note: I struggled with both the .com in the name and hitching entirely to "cloud" until they explained that it's great for market and search results.)
