I've heard GM described as a finance company that makes cars. In other words, they lose money on nearly every car they make, but make it up in finance charges through GMAC. It's generally a sub-prime business. Apple could certainly outsource the building of the car. Yeah, they probably won't build a whole car, unless it's one of the "simple" driverless cars that are being tested in England (and they don't go fast).
They may have blown it. The company had high expectations and were banking on them then cut features at the last minute only to have a high priced product with little functionality. I hope it doesn't come to pass but I'm bearish on this new product.
The center will be a nascar race track for testing.
Here is what cloud should mean:   You can access any file you backup to the cloud that you can access from any device. And you and create documents on any device from that service (and do save as to any file format). And it be cheap and not an upsell. And those files you create (along with your backups of files and pictures) available in one place.   Google and MS offer this and it is quite awesome. Apple only hurts itself by being disjointed and limited in this...
OneDrive and Google Drive are vastly better than iCloud.   You have the perfect services like apps and a file system access. It's cheap and you can locate all of your stuff and save it there.   Apple? Disjointed. Pictures are in one place and the app drive portion: limited only to iCloud apps and photos for iCloud only works on iOS. And Apple is a lot more expensive in wanting you to spend a lot more than you want to (upselling, like they do on their 64 and 128 GB...
 Apples just limited for a lot of users, and that's their business. They have their limited iCloud strategy (which is well behind everybody else) and that's their business model. Just shows that MS is a powerhouse at getting stuff done (that's different than getting it right). People should use what they like.Forums should be a dialogue to discuss the positives and negatives of technology and other topics. I see people on Appleinsider feel they are "objective" and are...
Some points to your feedback:1. I want a HD in the cloud. I want to dump whatever there, like books, and be able to access them (via GoodReader). I want a file system view like Google Drive.2. How do I access my iCloud photos from a Chromebook? Oh, I can't?3. I just logged into iCloud. It says my browser isn't fully supported.4. you don't know how I use Picasa. I use it in conjunction with other programs and it works perfect for me. And not locked into iPhoto's library...
Google and MS are vastly better than Apple iCloud. I can share folders with G-Drive. Can you do that on iCloud? No.I can save any kind of document on G-drive. Can you do that with iCloud? No.Google Picassa is far better that iPhoto. It doesn't import or mess with my photos and put them in its own library. What happened it Image Capture on Mac? Oh, yeah, its gone.Google also add much more storage for free (although I have 100 GB)I can use G-Drive on my Mac and Chromebook....
I don't understand why there is a settings section where you go to set the settings for all of your apps. It should be in the apps. For instance, in photos, there should be a setting right there that lets you toggle "Backup Photos". Settings is a mess, a disaster as a UI for users. 
iCloud is confusing. I stopped using it and use the vastly simpler OneDrive and Google Drive.
