Apple has already purchased the domain iCloud and it appears the next generation of MobileMe will take full advantage of Apple’s $1 billion dollar North Carolina data centre, as plans of cloud music and storage are apparently already in the works. “Castle” most likely could be a placeholder until the real name is revealed, most likely at WWDC when Apple previews iOS 5.
