Apple: MobileMe to launch July 9th

On the company’s .Mac website, Apple has announced the launch date of MobileMe, Apple’s new Internet service that works with your Mac, PC, iPhone, and iPod touch and adds push email, push contacts, and push calendar, a new suite of web applications, 20GB of online storage, and more:

MobileMe Launch
7/9/2008, 6pm-12am PT

As part of the MobileMe launch, will be taken offline at 6pm PT on Wednesday, July 9th.

Members will be unable to access or any .Mac services during this time with the exception of .Mac Mail accessed via a desktop application, iPhone, or iPod touch.

MobileMe will be available as soon as possible during this maintenance window.

  1. I don’t see any where on Apple’s site where it specifically says it’s launching Mobile Me on July 9th. Everywhere I’ve looked it says coming soon like it has for the past month.

  2. “Does anyone know why Apple is doing away with iCards?”


    It turns out that they are pure evil.

    iCards have been directly linked to widespread outbreaks of toe fungus, voter fraud and the deliberate mislabeling of millions of jars of chunky peanut butter. Obviously, Microsoft is still interested in a buyout.
