Apple It's a busy day for Apple today. Not only has the company launched its iCloud service for everyone, they also released Mac OS X 10.7.2. To top it all off, as expected, the company launched iOS 5.0 today, bringing a host of much-needed and long-awaited new features to iOS.

"The notifications are the most welcome change but a very significant one is iMessage. Yes Skype et al do the same thing but they're not as integrated. Nice jab at the carriers.

In France, unlimited data plans always come with unlimited texts, and it is cheaper to get unlimited texts alone. It seems to me that this severely reduces the usefulness of the iMessage feature, as texts work with phones from all manufacturers, work in areas where data doesn't, and are more power-efficient because your phone has to keep a GSM/CDMA connection alive anyway so they come for "free". Is the situation different where you live ?

Oh man, just had to quote this... too funny :-)

If I did not make this clear enough, I was talking about unlimited texts ;)

I think you were clear. I think he was being sarcastic because we no competition in the US.
