Apple Shuts Down MobileMe, Data Available for 'Limited Time'


As promised, Apple has shut down the MobileMe web service but is still allowing users to migrate their data for a "limited time". Apple had been sending out warnings to users of the impending shutdown.

Apple announced the planned discontinuation of the MobileMe service last year. Apple expects users to migrate to their iCloud service, though not all services have been transitioned to the new service.

I just wish they had made iCloud available to Snow Leopard; there is still some important business software that is not yet compatible with Lion.

still hope there'll be something equivalent to iDisk in the future, but with Apple's push to having no accessible file system, I doubt it'll happen.

I'm surprised they haven't come out with a substitute for iDisk by now. It's not like they can't do it through Documents in the Cloud regardless of file types.

I think Apple has been really efficient with reminding people and pushing them towards getting their information off and back. I've used services before that have literally closed shop in a week or two after an announcement. It's that or letting it turn slowly back into the rust of the internet.

Pulling out the fancy graphics though. That's always nice to see.

Now, my photos are no longer available.


The problem might be that if you can't read, you will not be happy with Apple services.
