Buy Your Business Apps In Bulk From Apple

Major Take-Aways From WWDC 2011

Apple’s CEO announced today a new service called iCloud at Apple’s WorldWide Developer Conference 2011. The service allows Apple product owners to store both documents and music in the cloud (on the Internet) rather than on a physical computer, hard drive, or mobile phone.

With the iCloud, users will be able to have greater access to content without having to max out their portable media devices. The iCloud also will offer the convenience of synchronizing automatically with all of the user’s Apple devices (iPhone, iPads, and Mac computers), allowing users to access docs, apps, calendars, and e-mails from any location without having to worry to remember to hit the Sync Button on their computer.

Ride The Wave – Google Docs Gets Comments

On Wednesday, Google announced that it would be making changes to the commenting feature in Google Docs. This change would make it more “discussion-like” with social elements borrowed from Facebook and Twitter.

Comments had previously been read as a string of text-only notes in Google’s cloud-based service. Google has now added more ownership and interactivity to each comment. Just like Facebook, Google Doc comments adds profile pictures, time stamps, and editing rights to each comment.

Google even enabled the Twitter-popularized “@mention” feature which will let you add users, direct comments at, and send e-mail notifications to others in the discussion.
