iOS 8 wants: Free iCloud backup storage for each and every iOS device

iCloud has been around since iOS 5. It's supposed to be a convenient way to backup data to Apple's servers and restore it to your iPhone or iPad any time you reset, replace, or upgrade your device. iCloud isn't perfect, however, and there are several really annoying things about it I'd love to see Apple address in iOS 8.

Dear Apple: Please fix how Messages stores images and videos!

iMessage works well enough for sending texts and media like photos and videos. Sure, there are still some bugs involving the reliability and consistency of when and how messages pop up on multiple iOS and OS X devices, but for most people, most of the time, it just works. What doesn't "just work" is how the Messages app handles photos and videos after they're sent. Here's what's happening, why it's a bigger problem than many people realize, and why I'd really like to see it fixed in iOS 8...

iTunes for iCloud: Could Apple media become ubiquitous on the web?

One of the headline features of WWDC 2013 - and of iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks - was iWork in iCloud, a way to share, view, edit, and collaborate on Pages, Keynote, and Numbers documents on the web. It looks great, it works great, and most importantly, it allows Apple - without having to build or maintain separate native apps for each and every alternate platform on the market - to open up their productivity suite beyond iOS and OS X, to make it available to anyone and everyone who has a compatible browser. So, could they do the same thing with iTunes, and with their media suite of music, TV shows, movies, and books?
