Apple's iCloud user base grows to over 250 million

The hits keep coming for the crowd in Cupertino, as the company just informed the world on its earnings call today that its iCloud platform now boasts a quarter of a billion users. This time last year, Apple's cloud storage service had but a mere 85 million customers, but 2013 has seen that number triple to 250 million. How? We're guessing that all those iPads and iPhones it's sold in the last year probably have something to do with it.
