iCloud has over 125 million users, reveals Apple

Apple 'couldn't be happier' with the success of its wireless syncing service

Apple revealed that iCloud now has over 125 million users when it announced its second quarter earnings on Tuesday.

Speaking at Apple's Q2 financial earnings conference call, chief financial officer Peter Oppenheimer said: "Customers are using all the features of iCloud, response has been terrific, feedback has been terrific."

iCloud, Apple's suite of wireless synchronisation and backup services for iOS devices, Macs and PCs, was launched on 12 October 2011, when Apple described the service as "the cloud as it should be".

On Tuesday, Oppenheimer said: "Picking up on storage [customers purchasing expanded storage or iTunes Match] is occurring and growing, because we just launched iCloud in October and we've now got over 125 million users that have come onto the service since then and they're building up documents and music and other things that they want to store, so I think storage growth will more come over time."

Oppenhiemer says that Apple "couldn't be happier" that iCloud has reached 125 million users in just six months.

"Our real desire here was not about selling more storage. We think Match is a great product and we recommend everybody use it, but it's a paid-for service," Oppeheimer continued. "We just really wanted to increase the customer delight from the entire ecosystem and platform of our iOS devices and the Mac, and that's why we've done iCloud."

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
