What is the 'The Cloud'?
'The Cloud' is basically a server owned by Apple, where everyone is encouraged to download all of their most personal information and contacts.
One is encouraged so strongly - that basically, your device does not operate properly without it. When you first set up your iPhone, or iTunes (which
is what is used to back up all your iOS devices) your are asked to register, and they do not even offer an option to opt out. The only way to opt out
is not through an option, but to cancel out of the registration.
