Is Apple going to give us all 100GB of cloud storage to host our music, backups and sync data? That seems a bit much to me. Here’s what I think will happen with Apple’s new MobileMe service.
Instead of trying to provide everyone with cloud storage, I believe Apple will use MobileMe as the brain of the cloud service. The actual storage will be on our individual machines. In effect, in the cloud.
I completely agree that Apple isn’t going to give everyone 100GB of storage in the cloud, but what I am hoping is that Apple uses Lala’s ability to stream from what a user’s library has in it by identifying the music, video, etc in each library. This would entail that Apple has one copy of a song and anyone who owns that song (in their iTunes Library at home) is able to stream it from Apple’s cloud store of Music. The same would then be true for videos purchased in the iTunes store and so on… think about it, people!
There is no better reason to not do something
There is no better reason to try
There is no better reason to fight
Against tyranny and strife
Removal is often the goal
Removal is often the challenge
Removal is often not enough
To completely fix what hangs in the balance
But it can bring about great change
But it can bring light
But it can bring great joys
In the darkness of the night
And so I live with friction
And so I live with what is hard
And so I live with what I love
But I stay upon my guard
