It was emotional, he entered on the stage and the James Brown's "I Feel Good" started playing.

Yep! But there is a category which will hate iCloud service... the music pirates... LOL.
Hey, we cannot please everybody, so we must pick and choose from time to time. i think Apple made the right choice!

I heard about iCloud briefly earlier this month, but reading a little more about it, from this page, I have a better understanding of what this service is. I'm sure Apple users and fans welcome this new service.

Nightbear, iCloud is on, the others one is in Beta, and one will come in July.
Thanks for stopping by

Yes Nancy, it was emotional because the Internet world love Steve Jobs, and they follow his progress, his enthusiasm is contagious, and if Apple is a great company today... it is because Steve is such a great personality, full of ideas and hard working normal guy.

I haven't heard of iCloud before now so thanks for the heads up. I enjoyed reading about the presentation of his new products by Steve Jobs and I imagine that was a very emotional introduction with the playing of "I Feel Good!" by James Brown.

Great job, as always!

nightbear on 06/07/2011

It sounds wonderful, but most of there stuff is, now isn't it? I am surprised by how thin Steve is, but I didn't know he had cancer. Good for him! I hope he beat it thoroughly.
