As the first half of 2011 comes to a close, it's time to look at what the second half of the year might offer in terms of new computer and mobile products and services. By the look of things, the next six months will be dominated by news from Apple and Google. But other prominent tech giants will make major contributions. The second half will also be marked by launches of some significant products that could garner the attention of consumers the rest of the year and into 2012, as well. This slide show will look at some of the more interesting product and service launches that should come to define the rest of the year. Some are rather obvious, like Apple's iCloud and Chromebooks, while others might surprise some. Either way, it's clear that the next several months are going to be exciting for those who enjoy getting their hands on new goodies that, in some way, should help make their lives just a little bit better. Read on through the following slides to find out what upcoming launches will define the second half of 2011 for both consumers and enterprise users.
At the Worldwide Developers Conference on June 6, Apple CEO Steve Jobs showed off iCloud, a Web-based platform, allowing users to store content online, and sync all that to iOS-based products, Macs and PCs. Apple plans to launch the service in the fall, which will add even more impetus to the cloud craze.
