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.

Although you’re still on your own when it comes to texting blunders, Google has created a feature called “Undo Send” that gives you a five second window to retract an e-mail you had just sent.
