iCloud hits 85 million users

iCloud already has 85 million users and over the past three months, its sign-ups have outpaces the unit sales of Macs, iPods, iPhones, and iPads combined. Apple had previously identified iCloud as its “strategy for the next decade.” At this growth rate, it could be Apple's strategy for much longer than a decade.

Here is some simple math: 40% of US smartphone users use android. 20-30% of US smartphone users use iOS. If you can download an app off the android market (which is at least 90% of those users) , you are automatically using the Google cloud. If you add something to your calendar on your android device, you are automatically using the Google cloud. If you are using Gmail, you are automatically using the Google cloud. I am not trying to fuel a fire here however I give credit where it's due. iOS does somethings better than Android, but when it comes to the cloud, Google is king.

SkyDrive ignored while another article praising apple. Maybe the site should consider a name change to iPhonearena with the growing apple propaganda articles being posted for no reason.
