    Looks like Apple is rolling out the iCloud plan changes. As a part of that they are offering some slightly better deals for people who currently have paid iCloud accounts.

    The new accounts are all monthly, but I received a yearly plan at a slight (89 cent) discount: $10.99 a year instead of $.99 a month.

    I could buy a song for that. :D

    Yes, that is slightly less space than my old plan, but at almost a quarter of the cost. Since I'm only using a bit over 5 GB, it's not an issue. If it does become an issue, I could get 200 GB for only eight dollars more a year than I was paying for the 25 GB.

    new plans:

    .99 /mo for 20 GB
    3.99 /mo for 200 GB
    10.99 /mo for 500 GB
    19.99 /mo for 1 TB

    There are cheaper cloud storage plans, but iCloud does (or will do) quite a bit more than just store your files, and it has the potential to work more closely with third party apps. We'll have to wait and see if people decide it's worth the money.

    No problem.

    I was just going to brag about my 89¢, but realized it needed some context. :)
