Tech Today: iCloud and iOS 5 launch today, Nintendo hacked

Monday is set to be one of the busiest days the tech world has seen in years. Here's what's coming your way.

Mega Monday could change the tech world
It's a pretty big day today, tech fans. By the close of play we'll know all about Apple's iCloud and iOS 5 bringing to a close months of speculation, and a few hundred miles down the road from Apple, in Los Angeles, the E3 gaming expo kicks off, with launches from all of the Big Three expected over the next few days.

Speaking of iCloud...
...More and more details are emerging ahead of the launch. Unconfirmed reports from Cult of Mac suggest that the service will be heavily tied to the Apple Time Capsule back-up system that currently keeps the data of some Apple users safe and sound. So instead of being stored on Apple's servers, your music could be stored on your Time Capsule. We'll see for sure tomorrow.
