Apple Releases Mac OS X Update for MobileMe
Thursday, July 10, 2008
Posted by: Glenn

Apple has released the Mac OS X Update for MobileMe via its Software Update utility. According to the company, the Mac OS X Update for MobileMe is recommended for users running Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.4 and includes general system fixes that enhance your Mac for MobileMe. After the update is installed, you'll be able to sign into your account from a new MobileMe pane in System Preferences. The Mac OS X Update for MobileMe weighs in at 8.30MB.

[Update: 1] According to Apple, the MobileMe transition is underway but is taking longer than expected. With the exception of the MobileMe web apps, all of the following services are now available: Mail, iDisk, Sync, iChat, Back to My Mac, and all published pages including Galleries and iWeb sites. The MobileMe web apps will be available as soon as possible.

[Update: 2] July 11, 2008 - 6:40 AM EST: The MobileMe web apps have been up and running for at least two hours now. It looks like MobileMe is finally live.

It seems to be working for some but not everyone. Mind you mobileme is not yet up and running so there is no rush i guess

If you are in a hurry to get it TUAW have a direct link to the updater

I think MobileMe went live for like an hour and then they pulled it. Maybe they pulled the update as well. Your guess is as good as mine? Rolling Eyes

Updated both my .Mac accounts but, they've not been able to connect to the "server" at all. My .Mac mail is still working though. . .

Hmmm....

It doesn't look good so far. How would you like to be the MobileMe project leader reporting to Steve Jobs right about now? Not me.... Laughing

It looks like the end was cut off. Here's the rest.

Thanx!
That seemed to work and to install the update. Very Happy
HOWEVER, when I went to SysPrefs and tried to use MM, it reported a "Can't Connect to Server" ERROR. This could be related to the fact that the MM website is still not active (undergoing "Maintenance").
