As part of the transition from .Mac to MobileMe, Web access to .Mac Bookmarks ends on June 30, 2008 (06-30-2008). After this date, you will no longer be able to access or update your bookmarks at (www.mac.com
To avoid losing any existing .Mac Bookmarks, sync them with Safari on your Mac before June 30, 2008."
I'm guessing that 10.5.4 and Mobile Me are released the same day or MobileMe goes live no more than 24 hours after the 10.5.4 update. I was thinking the 7th, but perhaps it will be on Tuesday, the 1st.
PS: If you're still syncing your bookmarks to Apple's servers so I don't understand why they are removing this simple web-based function.
PPS: Since your data is synced instantly, I'd like there to be an auto-back up feature built into MobileMe so if my phone is stolen or messed with I am not permanently losing everything at once. Sure, I can do a backup from Time Machine and sync again but that requires a precise search. For instance, bookmarks for Safari are located in ~Library/Safari/bookmarks.plist
. While this isn't a big deal for you and me it's still a chore, especially if you have to replace all your auto-synced data from different locations. Imagine someone who isn't familiar with the file and folder structure of OS X or someone who is tech-tarded.
Also, since the auto-sync is already setup, I'd like to see Mobile Me with a remote wipe feature. For example, your iPhone gets stolen so you log into your Mobile Me account from a computer somewhere and choose to remove all personal info from the handset and un pair the device from the Mobile Me network, which includes removing the saved password, which will be wiped along with all your other data.
Having a stolen device send back GPS location data or to actually write 1s to the drive would definitely be asking Apple for too much.
