Apple made some rather impressive announcements this week. And although people will roar at the news about the new Lion OS, I think the biggest thing was the fact that the company is getting into cloud computing.

Of course, the company has to put its stamp on things, hence it’s called the iCloud. But what exactly is an iCloud? What does it mean for government? And how is it different from all the thousands of cloud-based systems GCN has written about over the years?
