Apple Announces iCloud and While the FBI Admits an Internet Breach


Steve Jobs’ predicts that Apple’s freeiCloud will allow everyone store all of their music, video, photos, and documents on the Web, which is no surprise in today’s hot cloud world. But many alarms went off around the world with the FBI’s announcement that the hacker group LulzSec breached a FBI’s Internet and stole 180 passwords and users names which were posted on the Internet.

So maybe the Internet is still not secure enough for all users to rely on iCloud, but the iCloud announcement was unique for many reasons. Not the least of which was that Apple pre-announced the iCloud in advance of the Apple WWDC (World Wide Developers’ Conference), highly unusual for Apple.

The cloud is unbelievably hot today, and the iCloud is obviously one more way that Microsoft and PC manufacturers will have to re-invent themselves. That is, if iCloud is a success which may seem automatic given Apple great on successful innovation. But it’s possible that Internet users will prefer to keep their own computers and not rely on the cloud. Of course many folks are worried about security, maybe the FBI’s recent break-in will be a wake-up call. Stay tuned.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
