MobileMe: retrospective

The demise of MobileMe is something that I am going to miss. The decline of the service sees the demise of iDisk which I found superior to other services like and Dropbox.
Apple’s reinvention of its synching is designed to focus more on its media property iTunes and provide some cloud synchronisation for its iWorks package. My initial opinions on iCloud were reinforced by what I learned rather than reassured – this isn’t progress, its the destruction of value for power users with no clear consumer benefits.
