iCame, iSaw, iConquered

As Michael Corleone has observed:
There are negotiations being made that are going to answer all of your questions and solve all of your problems. That's all I can tell you right now.
Last night, perhaps at the same moment that Steve Jobs was announcing iCloud, I was attempting to set up Home Sharing in iTunes to see how it would play with a PC and an IPad. I got it working eventually which meant I could watch a movie on the IPad by streaming it from the PC but I couldn't seem to copy a film or to get it working IPad to PC. Yesterday may have been a game changer, but - at the coal face - perhaps the promised nirvana is still be some way off.

Jobs is an intriguing character. The commencement address he delivered at Stanford in 2005 is a very moving piece.

I will be interested to read iSteve: The Book of Jobs: The Exclusive Biography when it comes out next year.

I read in the media, apparently iCloud is a form of doubt from Steve Jobs to the Google and Amazon... Usually Apple has always been a trendsetter, not this time!
