Apple Testing Notifications on iCloud Website

Apple appears to be testing a notification service on the iCloud website. The test message appears at the top of the browser window upon logging into

Apple introduced a new notification system in iOS 5 and has announced that a similar feature will be coming to the Mac in the Mountain Lion operating system this summer.

It's possible that Apple will include syncing code in iCloud to share notifications across devices, for calendar alerts and new mail, or the notifications may be used for some other purpose.

Hopefully this means they are working on cloud-based alerts and if you read one on your iPhone it is removed from your iPad, etc.

I'm guessing Apple is working on more than just test notifications.
