The free ride's over, MobileMe users. Apple has begun informing users of its now defunct cloud-storage service, MobileMe, that they will no longer have the complimentary storage space on iCloud they've enjoyed the past two years.

Behind an art museum's gleaming galleries lies the off-limits and uninviting space that can hold as much as 95% of its collection: storage. These spaces are often packed with hundreds or even thousands of paintings, decorative art objects and other artifacts that can languish, unappreciated and untouched by curators, for years. But as a way to bring art out from its underbelly and display more of a museum's possessions, several institutions are embracing "visible storage" in public areas, exhibiting the art without the expense of a spacious, beautifully installed and curated show.
