I've been a subscriber to iTools, .mac, MobileMe and now iCloud. Sadly I had to lose my @mac.com email owing to abusive emails but I never really minded the rather babyish @me.com email as I had a forwarding address I could use. However, this has stopped working for the second time in as many months - no notification, just me knowing I should have received an email I never got, testing it by sending an email to my forwarding address and never getting it. This appears to be a particular problem with the address and MobileMe as forwards to a charity email I have.
Anyway, I know some of the original reviews of MobileMe complained that @me.com seemed a rather childish domain and having given the address out even over the last couple of days people look slightly askance and say they've never heard of it. Do you think Apple will ever open up @icloud.com as an option? I'd have though customers would find it preferable, or even bring back @mac.com The me address seems somewhat incongruous with the death of MobileMe anyway.
