Apple Web Services, a pending

Do any of you regularly use web services Apple? We refer, mainly, to iCloud . You know, the synchronization system in Apple's cloud permitting sharing and automatically duplicate all our content in different apple devices.

The truth is that it has never worked quite right. Since the days of MobileMe until the recent incidents with intermittent falls Facetime and iMessage, is that a large part of the users wonder why Apple does not apply quality standards to their web services.

  • A single set of Game Center is able to leave the entire system hung.
  • iTunes App Store and are based on Web technology early 90s.
  • The apps Find my Friends and Shared Photostream data continuously ask us, as if he saved quedasen.

There is talk of 500 million iOS devices and Mac connected to their data centers, a number that seems to be too much for what they had thought their engineers. However, we must say that this is something that has happened to much of the competition, with loud scandals like the collapse of the BlackBerry service for a couple of days.

Precisely this issue of falls is that Google, its main competitor, seems to handle much more ease. Not surprisingly, the company's world famous search engine takes years dimensioning and optimizing your network for this kind of thing does not happen.
