iCloud is designed as a consumer technology for owners of Apple’s Macintosh computers, iPads, iPhones, and iPod Touch music players. It is unlikely that the rebranding of Apple’s MobileMe service to the iCloud moniker will have any impact whatsoever on the business. Where it does impact Windows users the most is by making a very popular, well-known brand name (Apple) seem “hip” and current with today’s technologies. Admittedly, it was a nice gesture for Apple to allow users to store 1000 photos for free on the iCloud service, but as the $25/year paid ability to store music and documents is limited to iTunes and the iWork suite, this should not impact Microsoft Office users directly.
