The iCloud website has had its "beta" banner taken off and is now live for non-developers. 9 to 5 Mac report the help site is also up and running, but even though non-developers are now allowed to transition their AppleIDs to iCloud from MobileMe, it's still not clear when the 10.7.2 update for OS X, or iOS 5 for iOS devices will be released in order for devices to be able to connect — both items haven't been released at time of writing, but here's hoping that both with be out very soon.
Apple wins patents all the time, but Apple winning patents for multi-touch (or more specifically, the detection and processing of touch events), as well as an illuminated camera latch — something that Patently Apple seem pretty confident will appear in a future product, but I'm not so sure, as the design seems distinctly un-Apple like.
You've likely come across single-site browsers before, but new Mac app Raven takes single-site-browsing to a whole new level by offering custom interfaces for common websites, as well as all of your websites in an easy-to-access sidebar, much like Twitter for Mac or Sparrow.
Over at TUAW Chris Rawson has a bit of a rant as he explains why OS X and iOS aren't "jails". Whatever you stance is on free software and what you think of the act of jailbreaking, it's an interesting read.
