Apple’s New Data Center Likely to Focus on Cloud Computing


 A 500,000 square foot data center? As the Investors would say, "What's the play here?" Or even better as Tom Waits would say in hushed raspy voice "What are they building in there?"

 I have no concrete info obviously, but my bet is on the expansion of MobileMe and the move of proccessing power and data storage for apps like iMovie, iPhoto and iWeb. More done in the cloud from where ever you are on what ever platform and device you're on.

 Maybe it's more simple than that. Maybe it's iDisks big enough to work with time machine and back up your entire system in the cloud.

 Or perhaps it's to offer spotify like services for both music and movies. On demand and subscription based?

 Someday we'll know for sure but for now it's back to "What are they Building in there!"
