Apple Launches MobileMe Status
Saturday, July 26, 2008
Posted by: Brian

Apple has announced the launch of MobileMe Status. It's a new blog that promises to keep users up to date with the latest MobileMe news. According to an unnamed poster on the blog, "Steve Jobs has asked me to write a posting every other day or so to let everyone know what's happening with MobileMe, and I'm working directly with the MobileMe group to ensure that we keep you really up to date. In the 14 days since we launched, it's been a rocky road and we know the pain some people have been suffering. Be assured people here are working 24-7 to improve matters, and we're going to favor getting you new info hot off the presses even if we have to post corrections or further updates later." I don't know about you, but I think this is a baby step in the right direction. It could really provide a new level of communication between Apple and MobileMe users. What do you think?

Apple doesn't seem like the kind of company that likes to air dirty laundry. So I bet the postings don't last long. Steve Jobs should have just issued a letter saying the same kind of stuff. An apology of sorts like he did with the iPhone price cut. That being said, MobileMe seems to be working fine for me. Maybe I'm just in the minority?

To date .mac and MM have had recurring outages and have never been a good value even when they worked.

I don't get it. How can you screw it up the second time around. A large contingency of hardware and network resources should have been a no brainer.

Agreed. They also should've had an invitation-only beta period for .Mac users. This shouldn't have been a top-secret kind of thing with an instant rollout. Especially on the same day you are launching a major new product like the iPhone 3G.
