    I'm curious how iClound expands the current MobileMe. Lion and iOS 5 would have to be near revolutionary to impress me at this point. Nonetheless, I'm sure they'll be fine products.

    I'm excited, just one day away. Although I'm happy w/ Snow Leopard, I'm looking forward to some of the features in Lion

    What did you guys think of the announcements? I'm pretty stoked to take advantage of the cloud and to also use iOS5.

    Apple basically took away all revenue from Twitter clients, reminder apps, texting apps, etc.

    Seriously. I don't think I'll have to jailbreak my phone anymore though which will be nice. Will see after I play around with iOS 5 for a bit. I'm wondering if there will be more features added on later. http://www.apple.com/ios/ios5/features.html
    Claims there are 200+ new features.

    It pretty much makes MobileMe obsolete. Steve Jobs even joked about how MobileMe wasn't the best idea for Apple, so they're taking the better parts of it (calendar, mail, and address) and keeping that in iCloud and providing it all for free. No more $99/yr charges.

    This is the link to the keynote address about Lion and iCloud. The discussion on iCloud starts at minute 79 of the 117minute address on the new applications.

    I find it interesting they're adopting the Microsoft business model now. I suspect that the texting is restricted to iOS devices only. I'd be surprised if it applied to non-Apple devices as well.

    Why won't you have to jailbreak your phone anymore?

    Microsoft had Windows Live (response to MobileMe) and offered for free. So paying $99/year for MobileMe, vs having equivalent functionality for free made them look silly. I'll admit, I did have have a MobileMe subscription.

    However, with iCloud taking it to the next logical level with apps and iTunes, and offering it for free, is a big win. It'll be interesting to see how it goes up against Google's and Amazon's offerings.
