    Are you sure? icloud / cloudme / mobileme .... all sounds like one oneness, don't it? Add the fact that iCloud - now cloudme does something very similar to what idisk / mobileme does or will do and then add the new cloudme homepage which seems to reference OSX more than anything else.

    Just sayin'...

    "cloudme"?



    It's likely your ISPs DNS info isn't updated.



    I was instantly directed to http://www.cloudme.com/en

    I keep hearing this cloud service will be free to start. MobileMe is supposedly in limbo, but I just got a renewal notice from apple for $99.

    True, but the A record is: 83.140.241.12

    which is xcerion.com





    So it appears that it is not DNS doing the work but instead it is a script.

    Looks like they will be changing MobileMe to iCloud.

    Castle sounds cooler if you ask me and that domain isn't even being used. I guess the general public is like "oh wow, cloud".



    Whatever... I never liked the MobileMe name either
