MobileMe fails to impress MobileMe was originally unveiled in June as an upgrade to Apple's online .Mac services, and it offers as much as 20GB of storage for mobile push e-mail, calendars and contacts, and costs US$99 per year. Since its launch, however, the in-the-cloud service has been besieged by setbacks. Last month, Apple acknowledged that MobileMe users were experiencing difficulties getting their e-mail services to directly sync up on both Macs and PCs without delay. A little later in the month, MobileMe experienced service outages that left approximately 1 percent of MobileMe users without access to e-mail on both their iPhones and their Mac or PC mail clients. And then there were the phishing attacks that occurred while Apple was transitioning from its .Mac to MobileMe services.
