Apple unveils redesigned MobileMe Calendar, begins beta signups - Page 2

Just because MobileMe is a pay service does not mean you are any safer than someone with a free email host. What matters is this, do you use your @me address with friends, family, web sites, on forms, resumes etc? If you do you run the HIGH risk of getting spam email. The more you use (and post) your email address the worse it will get.

So for instance if you sign up to an online site like AppleInsider with your @me address you run the risk of getting spam. Certain sites sell their member email lists to third parties for this very reason....to make money!

Some people are really naive. You don't need a @me email to spam @me members.

hmm, interesting. i have one gmail account that i never -ever- use for online forms etc, and i have only given the address out to 3 or 4 close friends. at this very point in time, there are 172 items in the spam folder.

It was obvious that it wasn't that they 'couldn't speak English to hem, but that they wouldn't..
Snip.

Having lived in Germany half my life and the other half in Canada, I can attest to the fact that bear always tastes like shit.

N.B. If you're done with the sentence and didn't notice anything... something's wrong.

I'm very surprised that AppleInsider writers and the none of the commenters picked up on that other than you.

This is the seedling for iTunes in the Cloud.
I'm psyched about it.

I would suggest that before anybody dises it to keep an open mind at least try it first.

BTW, compared to the cost of 2-3 coffees at Starbucks, or the like, a month, MobileMe is a fantastic bargain. And somehow, I am more confident that Apple will be around a lot longer than a coffee house. However, I do like the idea of a monthly or quarterly subscription payment service via the iTunes Store.

Totally agree.

As an iTools, .mac, MobileMe user for ten years or so, the money spent on the service is trivial for the convenience of keeping 8 macs, two iPods, an iPhone, an iPad synced, my airport stations accessible from everywhere and having the ability to jump on other people's macs and within minutes of creating a user account on it to have my preferences, mail accounts, contacts, bookmarks, calendars, transmit favorites, etc at my disposal.

I understand that it's not for everybody. A single Mac user probably doesn't see the value in it in the same way I do. For me it's a no brainer. In order to duplicate the functionality it offers, google alone won't do. The fact that I pay around $10 bucks a month for a family account that offers all that, without handing my address book to a company like google that thinks that 'privacy is dead' is not worth bitching about.

Obviously YMMV. I just wish people would stop whining about it. Don't want to pay for it? Fine. Just don't add up the time it takes to set up an equivalent service with 'free' providers. Flipping burgers will pay better.

Surprised myself. But it got fixed. So I suppose that someone must have seen it.

Have way too many files uploaded to my MobileMe account, and too many years at the same address to kill it really.

Sync between my MacBook and PowerMac has broken so many times that I gave up. Tried every hint I could find and nothing works. I have to access iDisk with Cyberduck because Finder's WebDAV implementation (or maybe it's an iDisk issue, I don't know) is completely unreliable and unpredictable.

I won't be rushing to sign up for the beta, if ever. Still. the $79 or so from Amazon is probably cheaper than paying for hosting considering how much bandwidth I use up. Also, I find MobileMe's IMAP access more reliable than my Yahoo POP account.

Right now I use Google Apps because I have a custom domain. Costs me $0 to get everything Apple charges for, and they don't even support custom domains. The only compelling feature Apple has is Find My iPhone, which there's no way I'm paying $100 a year for.

Not even close to being accurate.

The beta is now open and people (including me) are getting their invites. On first impression, I like the design a lot. It's very slick, but still casual friendly and that's fine with me. I also like the blue much more than the brown hue in the iPad app.

The CalDAV breaking the push calendar on the iPad doesn't bother me too much. Slightly put out by the fact that it means having a second account specifically for the beta account, but I can live with it until it goes final and presumably integrates back into the original MobileMe account. I'd rather make use of the new design and features of the beta and wait for the iPad to catch back up.
