Music in the Clouds

In Chapter 7 I describe cloud computing, mainly in the context of commercial applications. Here’s an example of something distinct from this and aimed at the consumer. Apple has just announced its Music in the Clouds extension iTunes Match that allows non iTunes music to be accessed by Apple users. The base technology that supports this is iCloud which was announced in mid 2011. Every time I see an article about increasing broadband speeds and articles such as this I get more and more confident about how the cloud will dominate computing in the future.
