Apple Buys iCloud.com ➝

John Paczkowski:

Apple has indeed acquired the domain name iCloud.com from Sweden-based hybrid cloud computing outfit Xcerion.

In a potentially related note, Consomac.fr has discovered indications that Lion includes the ability to upgrade MobileMe to a new service called “Castle.”

I don’t mind the name “Castle” but hate the name “iCloud.” It’s more of a parody of an Apple product name than an actual Apple product name. But, I’m left wondering why they wouldn’t just stick with the name “MobileMe?” It’s a good name.
