yeah, i'm sure the service will continue just fine. I just think it's an unusual situation where there are still paying customers for a service that is being openly mocked by Steve Jobs himself in the Keynote.
Important information for MobileMe members.
Dear MobileMe member,
We'd like to share some exciting news with you about iCloud — Apple’s upcoming cloud service, which stores your content and wirelessly pushes it to your devices. iCloud integrates seamlessly with your apps, so everything happens automatically. Available this fall, iCloud is free for iOS 5 and OS X Lion users.
What does this mean for you as a MobileMe member?
When you sign up for iCloud, you'll be able to keep your MobileMe email address and move your mail, contacts, calendars, and bookmarks to the new service.
Your MobileMe subscription will be automatically extended through June 30, 2012, at no additional charge. After that date, MobileMe will no longer be available.
When iCloud becomes available this fall, we will provide more details and instructions on how to make the move. In the meantime, we encourage you to learn more about iCloud.
Excellent. I might actually start using my me.com email address lol. I started out using it only to forward all my gmail mail to, before gmail was true push. At least I got my email address before the floodgates were opened, and pickings are slim.
If you have Mobile ME, it will work as is till July 2012. But, when iCloud is released you can convert over to it, and KEEP your current email address. If you have JUST renewed your service, you'll get a refund, BUT, Apple are extended ALL Mobile ME account till July 2012...
I received an email from Apple today (like many other Mobile ME users) about it...
