Rumor: Apple’s cloud service to be called iCloud

Well, that was innovative.

According to blog GigaOM, Apple’s still-underwraps cloud-based service will be called iCloud – not that we expected it to be called anything else.

Apparently, Apple has purchased the domain name iCloud.com from Swedish company Xcerion, who promptly changed their own service’s name from iCloud to CloudMe. Now why would they do that? A $4.5 million cheque supposedly did the trick.

As usual, Apple is yet to respond to the rumors.

    icloud.com redirects to CloudMe.com. No sign of Apple yet.
