We are seeing recent buzz about could music player, share and service. GigaOM just reported Apple acquiring the domain iCloud.com from Sweden-based company Xcerion.

According to GigaOM:

My source, who is familiar with the company, says that Xcerion has sold the domain to Apple for about $4.5 million. Xcerion hasn’t responded to my queries as yet. At the time of writing, the Whois database showed Xcerion as the owner of iCloud.

iCloud.com was a just domain name and a storage-as-a-cloud service owned by Linkoping, Sweden-based desktop-as-a-service company, Xcerion. Xcerion’s iCloud service has just been rebranded to CloudMe, and the company acquired the CloudMe.com domain on April 5, 2011.

Here’s what currently shows up when a WHOIS query is made for iCloud.com:
