The per year pricing plans for Apple's iCloud have surfaced online.The per year pricing plans for Apple's iCloud have surfaced online.

When iCloud launches in the Fall you'll automatically get five gigabytes free. For those of you who need a bit more space Apple is offering ten gigabytes (really fifteen if you count the included free five gigabytes) for twenty dollars. Paying forty bucks a month will get you 25 gigabytes (again, including the free five) and for a hundred even you'll get fifty gigabytes.

New iPad commercial accidentally reveals some book pricing information.New iPad commercial accidentally reveals some book pricing information.

It's easy to miss just by viewing the ad but the folks over at The Unofficial Apple Blog have spotted a frame of the commercial that indeed shows off some pricing. So, want to know what you'll be paying for books on the iPad? Probably around $12-$14 bucks a pop.

Microsoft decides to change commercials per Apple's demands.Microsoft decides to change commercials per Apple's demands.

...the latest in the series has reportedly been edited to mollify Apple. The one minute 'Lauren and Sue' spot originally had a girl and her mother shopping for a laptop, and the daughter said, 'This Mac is $2,000, and that's before adding anything.'

Microsoft not taking Apple's legal threats to pull commercials too seriously.Microsoft not taking Apple's legal threats to pull commercials too seriously.

It does seem a little silly what with all the Vista and general PC bashing that Apple did in those 'Get a Mac' ads.

New pricing model in iTunes turns out to be a good thing for artists and their respective labels.New pricing model in iTunes turns out to be a good thing for artists and their respective labels.

The math is simple. So long as sales for higher-priced tracks don't fall more than 29%, labels take in more revenue from $1.29 tracks, after factoring in wholesale rates, distribution fees and mechanical royalties.
