Cloud Computing and your iPad

There was a story that appeared on MacWorld's Middle East website recently headlined "Will the cloud curb interest in the 64GB iPad 2?"  My answer in short is no.

While the story goes on to make compelling arguments about what services you can get on a cloud today and explaining in great detail how memory prices fluctuate as you increase capacity, the fact of the matter is that in this region, we don't have most of those cloud services available.

While Pandora is often highlighted in the US, it is largely unavailable here.  The same goes for a lot of other services due to copyright or regional restrictions that rights holders have got.

In fact, even Apple iTunes is limited in terms of what it offers in this region so most people with MP3 music on an iPod, iPhone or iPad have downloaded these through other means.

Keeping all this in mind, it's been little wonder that the 64GB models have in fact been our best selling models of iPad's at Jacky's thus far and we expect the same to continue going forward when the much awaited iPad 2 hits our shelves.
