Like nearly all of iCloud, with which it shares its trademark vowel prefix, iTools was free."</em></p><p><img height="400" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1307930327.usr105634.jpg" style="margin-left: 5px; margin-right: 5px;" width="590" /></p><p>Then .Mac, then MobileMe, and now iCloud. Apple certainly has progressed through various versions of their "cloud" to finally come up with something that at least is competitive with the other services such as DropBox and Evernote. While finally getting here, Apple certainly has taken their time. Usually the leader in innovation, such as adding and dropping different connectors and options from their hardware, this time they appear to be late to the game. But is that such a bad thing? I'm hoping this latest version will work like I think it will and the wait will be worth it, what are your thoughts?</p>
