It’s not like I’ve used it (at all), but I’m getting a kick out of MobileMe anyway. See, Apple has extended my trial of .Mac repeatedly, and now I’ve got service through November, and it’s all free! Seriously, this is getting pretty funny!
I do expect that Apple will get the bugs worked out and that MobileMe will become a useful tool, maybe even by November. But I still don’t see the compelling value in the service that makes it worth $99 (or $76.99) when Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft offer similar services for free.
I suppose it would be nice to have a “single sync” cloud service, but it doesn’t work all that well at this point. Maybe I’ll pay when they get it right. Or maybe I’ll just keep getting free extensions forever!
