  1. I posted this comment somewhere else today…forgot where.

    Can you imagine Steve perched on top of that golden apple in front of the farm down in Maiden, NC, saying… “Release the Kracken!”

    Scheduled maintenance my a**. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />

  2. Good! About time. MM has fouled up my bookmarks so many times I can’t remember. It works fine with Safari browsers on OSX & XP, but makes multiple duplicates when I sync with IE. This, in spite of multiple resets…..come on MS, err I mean Apple!

  3. And WHY don’t they send out an announcement to all of their MobileMe subscribers? Why do I have to come here to find this out? Gee, have they lost our email addresses?

  4. pardon us while we move all your mobile me goodness to our new god server farm in NC. By 11pm you should notice yourself stop aging and your body get more muscular while you are using mobile me.

  5. Are you suggesting we should have to visit a web site to hear about the scheduled maintenance?
    Do you daily trawl every announcement page of every service you use to make discover if maintenance is happening or not?
    U R an IDIOT!

  6. @JimR,
    But I don’t regularly go to check that web site. Kind of boring. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />
    But you are not an idiot.
    Just sayin’

    You are absolutely correct, they not only have our MobileMe addresses, but also a back (incase we loose our passwords). How about an email blast to us. Oh wait, it’s because you can’t have mail lists! Well that’s not entirely true, you use the work around, but come on really for $99 yearly fee it’s a standard feature we should have.

    Perhaps this will be our turn at the new password requirement?
