Apple puts cloud computing at the heart of its aircraft

The giant consumer electronics, Apple said Monday its future operation icloud service, which lets you synchronize documents, information and even music between different devices of the mark. Presented by Steve Jobs, the cofounder of the company at the opening of the Worldwide Developpers Conference, the annual high mass for Apple programmers, the service will include a system including synchronization of music libraries on users.

It will therefore face the music services presented in recent months by Amazon and Google. But unlike his two main competitors, Apple propose not to listen to music streaming, but downloading the tracks on all devices connected to the same iTunes account. Songs purchased from iTunes can be downloaded directly to multiple devices, for cons for songs from other sources, users must subscribe to a paid service ($ 25 per year) that will give them the ability to download versions of good quality of the pieces they already have.

GENERALIZED SYNCHRONIZATION For Steve Jobs, the virtual services are the future of personal computing. icloud synchronize both user information, software, documents and books between its terminals Apple brand. "Why? Pretended to wonder Steve Jobs, because the terminals have changed." "Today, they all read music, photos, videos.

If I buy a song on my iPhone, I want to listen on all my other devices. Keep all objects synchronized us crazy. " Apple co-founder said he had learned the lessons of MobileMe, a set of virtual services launched in 2008 by Apple, "too fast" by his own admission. This synchronization of files was previously the trademark of Google, whose services are fully dematerialized.

The search engine has developed a range of services for its synchronized mobile operating system Android users on PC or Mac, and in May launched a music service that allows paperless listen to his music anywhere. Like Amazon, which launched a similar service in March, Google had not entered into any agreement with rights holders, holding that the service was not comparable to a streaming software, like Spotify, since users can not listen to music that they themselves have loaded.
