Cloudy With a Chance of iMeatballs

Forrester predicts that the personal cloud will be a $12 billion dollar market by 2016, with 196 million U.S. consumers using a personal cloud service.

Kicking things off is the Apple iCloud, which relegates the PC to just another device and stores and syncs everything in the cloud, including music, photos, videos, files and apps. At launch, it will include nine apps with cloud components – iTunes, Photo Stream, Storage, iBooks, Backup, App Store, and all the MobileMe apps (Contacts, Calendar, Mail).
