Still No MobileMe (or .Mac)

mobileme1 Well, .Mac went offline last night like they said it was going to however, we have yet to see MobileMe go online. Currently when you go to Mac.com you get a page saying This Service is Temporarily Unavailable and if you go to Me.com it forwards you to Apple’s website. I’m guessing the delay is intentional. It could be that they are waiting for the release of firmware 2.0 before they go live with MobileMe (which is rumored to be released today).

MobileMe launches July 9th

mobilemeIt seems that .Mac will be transitioning over to MobileMe on July 9th between 6pm and 12:00am PST. At 6:00pm PST .Mac will officially go offline and then somewhere between 6:00pm and 12:00am PST MobileMe will launch. Here is what the .Mac website says,

As part of the MobileMe launch, www.mac.com will be taken offline at 6pm PT on Wednesday, July 9th. Members will be unable to access www.mac.com or any .Mac services during this time with the exception of .Mac Mail accessed via a desktop application, iPhone, or iPod touch

.Mac users will be automatically upgraded to MobileMe. You will still be able to use your .mac email address however, you will also get a new address at me.com with your user name. You will be free to use which ever you prefer. You can go HERE for more information on how the transition from .Mac to MobileMe will work.
