MobileMe Live July 9th

MobileMe Goes Live July 9th

Members of the .Mac community will be experiencing some technical difficulties Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 12 a.m. Pacific time, because the www.mac.com will be switching to the new MobileMe site.  The subscribers received a message today warning them that they will not be able to access the www.mac.com address but will be able to get emails through the Mail app, iPhones, and iPod Touches.

If you aren’t familiar with the MobileMe platform, let me give you a quick rundown.  MobileMe runs the same e-mail, photo galleries, and web pages as .Mac did.  The better pat of MobileMe is that it can now work as a push service for your iPod Touch, iPhone, Mac computer or even PC.  If you are familiar with the Microsoft Enterprise service, you know that when you receive an e-mail or update a contact or schedule a meeting, that is automatically added to your wireless device or vice versa.  Well MobileMe works the same way, except a lot cheaper and more focused on the average person, while Enterprise is more for the big, bad corporate world.  Essentially, if you update John Doe’s address and picture in your iPhone contacts, that information is sent to, what Apple calls, a “cloud.”  This cloud then transfers that data to all your devices and computers using MobileMe.

I don’t have a .Mac address, but plan on trying out the MobileMe trial that will be released when the official launch of the site goes live.  I will try to give an in-depth review of the features and processes of the site and all the bells and whistles that go along with it.
