Apple's iCloud, iOS 5, And Lion

What about Apple's big day on Monday? Steve Jobs came on to the stage and helped introduced the next upgrad to its mobile and computing strategy for the future.

What does it really mean? I don't know. It was fantastic to see many pieces come together. At the same time as I followed the various live blogs on the WWDC keynote, I can't help but wonder just what is it that Apple showed us today.

Was this the future or was it just another lead change between Apple and its competitors?

You have to look at the three main pieces of Apple's mobile, Mac, and cloud products but see it as a whole that is more than the sum of its parts. After all, isn't this always the case with Apple anyway?

When Apple licensed the Mac OS to others, the Mac clones while mostly ran the OS adequately, it just never felt the same as a real Mac from Apple. The hardware, software, and services all worked together.

With iOS running on the iPhone, iPod touch, and the iPad and OS X running on the Mac, they are now being meshed with a renewed cloud focus.

My hope is that we are witnessing glimpses into the future than just incremental improvements.
