iTunes for Windows is pretty crappy in the first place IMO.
Yeah.  I hope I can go back to a Mac soon.  Still pretty frustrating in the mean time...

why the freak would you use any apple program other than itunes on windows? chrome/firefox >> safari, windows has its own media player and im sure there's better downloadable software than quicktime.

Personally I've never had a problem with iTunes for Windows, but I have a relatively small music collection and only make a purchase maybe once or twice a year.

As a person who only bought (or was directly involved) Apple products for 5 years (3 iMacs, 2 MBPs, 3 iPhones, 2 iPod Touches, 2 iPod Nanos), I whole heartedly agree.

Report: Apple's iCloud relies on Amazon, Microsoft cloud services

Apple's iCloud service runs on Amazon's elastic cloud and Microsoft Azure, according to a report by The Register.

Rumors that Apple was using the two platforms to host iCloud started circulating in June, after the company released the first details about the service. Sources close to the deal have now confirmed the rumors, but said neither Amazon nor Microsoft are allowed to talk about it, according to The Register.

It didn't make sense for Apple to become a cloud provider as it is more consumer-focused, according to the sources.

If true, the move is a boon for Microsoft's fledgling Azure service, which is running up against competition from Amazon Web Services -- currently the dominant player -- IBM, VMware and others.

Apple's choice to use two vendors to host iCloud could prevent any issues, technical or otherwise, that might arise, though it's not yet clear how the two cloud providers will manage the workload.

Most AWS users run on Linux, while Azure is Windows-based, reports The Register, which could create additional cost and complexity.

Apple does have a $500 million data center underway in North Carolina, which could eventually be used to host the service.

iCloud was launched in beta last month and is expected to be available by the end of this year.

I can't believe people still believe that.  And in any case, what does it have to do with the article?  All that matters is what Apple is paying, and you can be damn sure they played Amazon and MS against each other.  They probably got bargain-basement price for Azure anyway if MS is serious about getting it off the ground.

As much as the fanboy in me wants to point and laugh, this is a very shrewd business move by Apple.  My inner fanboy will have to settle for the thought of an Apple zealot somewhere on the phone with Apple support demanding that they make sure all of his music is stored on Amazon servers :mg:

That doesn't make any sense.  Build gigantic data center; outsource to other companies?

Theirs isn't done yet is it?  Maybe they're anticipating more demand than they can handle alone, or maybe they have it earmarked for something else already.

:shrug:, they've been building it for a while.  Well before they announced iCloud I thought.  I don't know what else they'd use it for either.

That's been known for weeks. I wonder when the actual phone comes out.
