Apple is going to unveil iCloud next week at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). During the opening keynote, Steve Jobs will detail Apple's new cloud-based service. Alongside that, they will be showing off the new version of iOS, iOS 5, which powers the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. They will also be dropping more details on their latest desktop operating system and possibly announcing a release date for Lion.
In preparation, Apple has picked up the iCloud.com domain name. This report comes from MacRumors. It's believed that the domain was sold for $4.5 million, and was previously owned by a company called Xcerion. It seems that Apple also owns iCloud.org, and it's likely that both of these sites will redirect to Apple in the future.
Luckily, they didn't wait 9 years for this one.
