    With Apple gradually moving away from its i-branding, it seems inevitable that this will one day affect iCloud.

    Which may be inconvenient for the many using iCloud email addresses, but presumably these existing addresses will continue to be supported (as with me.com).

    Maybe Apple ID will be the preferred branding (and address):

    Probably not. iPhone, iPad, iOS, iCloud.

    Yeah, iCloud sounds better than Apple Cloud. Isn’t iTunes the only existing branding that is being switched to Apple xxx?

    I think any new brands are taking the  name, but anything existing is pretty much staying the way it is.

    Apple would be crazy to change the names of their tried brands like iPad, iPhone. I think iCloud is unlikely to get a rebrand.

    Photos and Messages are another couple of examples (not "Apple" but dropping the "i").

    And of course iTV became Apple TV before it was even released (probably due to the British TV network of the same name).

    The more I think about it, the more I reckon iCloud will just become Apple ID. Pushing their privacy credentials will be the next big thing.

    I see a problem with this being universally standard., as opposed to just signing up for a service as a "option" of randomness.

    No one would know your real email address, even your own friends ? This would suggest that your own family members would probably spam you... (not a nice feeling) Secure ? yes. but i wouldn't want my family members to know an ugly email address not a work place i'd work at.

    Leave this as an "option", rather than a requirement..

    Although we don't know all of the details yet, this feature is for "one site" email addresses.

    For example, you go to sample.com and they require an email address to register. You give them a random address. When you decide to stop going to sample.com, you cancel your registration but they keep sending you emails. You can then disable the random address and their emails either bounce or go nowhere.

    Oh, and Books too (after they had to rename the iBook the MacBook to accommodate iBooks).
