Apple teases iCloud

Culture
It's Wednesday, June 1st, I'm Wilson Tang on CNET.com and it's time to get loaded. In an unusual move, Apple issued a press release about its much rumored cloud stream service at the upcoming worldwide developers conference or WWDC. As of yet, there are no details about the i cloud services as called, but CNET news reports that Apple already has agreement to music labels and even some movie studious to offer cloud based music and movie stream. In addition, Steve Jobs is expected to be on hand to unveil major new features to Mac OS X lying for laptops and desktops, and iOS 5 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPad touch. In more Apple news, the company has issued updates to its iWork suite of office applications, now for the iPhone and iPad touch. Pages, numbers and keynote will make their way to smaller screens with some added new features like improved iDisk access and AirPrint support. The office suite apps are now all universal. So, if you purchase the apps for your iPad, they will be available for no charge. Twitter has unveiled a new follow button that websites can now use to easily add followers to their twitter feeds. More than 50 websites added Twitter's new follow button at lunch including Justin Bieber's website and our own CBS interactive sites like CNET.com, CBSNews.com and more. Last month, Sprint testified before congress that the proposed 39 billion dollar AT&T mobile merger will go "irreparable" harm to consumers by creating an 80s-style duopoly of Verizon and AT&T. Yesterday, the company filed a formal 377-page petition to the FCC opposing the merger saying it result in "less" choice for customers and higher prices. Critics of the merger complained that reducing the number of nationwide mobile providers will concentrate too much power with 2 companies controlling 80% of the market. A new report from the World Health Organization claims that mobile phone use is a carcinogenic hazard. This puts in the same categories of lead and gasoline engine exhaust. Consumers over the years have received dozens of conflicting reports about the safety of cellphone use and the wireless industry's own trade group, the CTIA was quick upon that the report doesn't say cellphone use causes cancer. CNET has a series of in-depth reports on that matter, which you can read about at news.cnet.com. Motorola may have accidentally unveiled some unreleased products on its mobility page. The mobile tech website packing now was able to snatch some screen shots that show part of a Xoom 2 tablet, the pearl handset of Verizon LTE phone and even a watch phone. Finally, Nintendo has announced price drop for its Nintendo DS Lite. If you can get your hand on the new 3DS, the old DS Lite can now be having for just a hundred dollars down from its previous price of 130 dollars. The pricing starts on June 5th. Those are your headlines for today. I'm Wilson Tang for CNET.com, and you've just been loaded
