How To Setup iCloud

The newly released guide explains how to get the online service working on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, as well as on a Mac or PC, a process that apparently can be confusing and to tart off, you’ll need to upgrade iTunes to version 10.5 and then upgrade your Apple gadget to iOS 5.

Using the latest, more stringent, 5-cycle EPA tests the strange looking vehicle posted a miles-per-gallon equivalent almost 250-percent that of the Nissan leaf and the four-passenger eVLC also scored an impressive 114 mile range on its tiny 10.5 kWh battery and also ucked down a full charge in six hours from a standard 110v socket. The biggest hurdle for the Edison2 crew still lies ahead: convincing the world that its extremely lightweight (1,031 pounds) eVLC is safe to drive on public roads and computer simulations show that meeting Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards is within the eVLC’s reach, but actual crash testing, which is scheduled to begin in late 2011……………..
