It's because the Windows Phone 8 announcement was shacky, unfortunately Apples services couldn't handle it.

Could be the result of a server error,general routine maintainence or perhaps when apple was doing their weekly spying and tracking of ifans icloud data they caused an outage,they will have it back soon no doubt !

So funny. I'm sure ifans will really be happy with it's newest iOS feature. Apple forgot to announce it last week, so sheep iWait for a week to announce it. Taco and gallitoking will be pretty excited about it.

iWait is a subset of the features included in iCan't. As in iCan't:
-Send your email to non-Me.com domains (conspiracy to require all iApple users to move to Me.com),
-Process iMessage traffic to non-iMessage addresses (further conspiracy to require all iApple users to have an AppleID).
-Upload photos taken with an iDevice to anything other than iCloud.
-And, and, and.

In other words, if you try to escape iJail, you will be hunted down and dragged back to iJail....

Even though I have an iPhone 4S on my second line this is exactly why I will never give up my DROID and Android. iOS with iTunes and iCloud is too limiting and relies to heavily on network connectivity as it is, I can't imagine the frustration of the services being down even with network coverage. Moreover, this only reaffirms the need for removable and 'swappable' memory.

I would hate to be iRestricted to iCloud right now.

you should ask your friends with android how text, gtalk, fring, and google sync are working.

the answer is wonderfully since they are not all tied together :)

Guys, this isn't funny. It means regular folks out there can't use their devices.

I am listening to Nine Inch Nails right now. I haven't done that for like 9 years. I am not naked right now, though. I know that many of you will be disappointed by that. Servers go done sometimes. Siri was a pile of poop at launch because Apple's servers couldn't handle the traffic.

i seemed to be unaffected by the outage...but i don't use Siri or iCloud all that often. so Apple's servers have an outage - what's the big deal? Wireless carriers have them...cable providers...Playstation Network. Fandroids can't help themselves to take every opportunity to bash Apple. Its practically everyone who hates iOS posting on this article. If you're not interested in iOS, why do you have so much to say about it? The jealousy over Apple's popularity is off the charts from the Android community...& pretty infantile. I thought ya'll were supposed to be the smarter ones.
