Apple reportedly buys iCloud.com for $4.5 million

Apple may have purchased the domain name iCloud.com for $4.5 million, according to Om Malik of GigaOm.

iCloud.com was a cloud storage service owned by Xcerion, and recently rebranded the product as CloudMe.com. Malik’s source claims that Xcerion sold the domain to Apple for $4.5 million.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

Xcerion’s cloud product rebranding occurred on the 5th of April. With rumors that have circulated for years regarding Apple’s cloud music service coming to a head, this is one more piece of evidence causing speculation that such a launch is imminent — perhaps before or at this year’s WWDC.

A cloud music service from Apple would compete with Amazon’s recently-launched Cloud Locker.
