Think iCloud is reactionary? Think again. — Apple News, Tips and Reviews

leave a comment »

There’s some talk that iCloud and iOS 5 are examples of Apple playing catch-up with the competition from Google. Apple may have introduced some tricks that seem borrowed from Android, but iCloud has been a long time coming, according to this video of a much-less-guarded Steve Jobs delivering the closing keynote at Apple’s 1997 WWDC.

It’s a long video (over an hour) that merits a full watch if you haven’t seen it, but turn your attention specifically to around 0:17:00 to hear Jobs’ remarks about the future of computing, and how “carrying around these non-connected computers [will seem] Byzantine.” Google may have gotten to the cloud first, but Apple’s had that bun in the oven for quite a while now.
