Several sites including 9to5Mac and MacRumors are reporting that a transition tool for developers is now available allowing MobileMe accounts to be converted to iCloud. Until now, developers have had to use a separate account to try out iCloud. The tool is apparently available now at me.com/move however I’ve not been able to confirm this as I have no current MobileMe account to test it with. Remember, this is for developers only so don’t go trying to use this tool unless you’re a paid-up member of Apple’s iOS developer program.
Update: You will also want to install Lion 10.7.2 beta and iCloud beta 6 before doing this otherwise you may get errors on your Mac when accessing your MobileMe account via email, calendars and contacts.…Read More
Apple have just flicked the switch on iCloud.com and as you can see from above you can now log in to the iCloud web service using your AppleID. Please note this is for developers only and is currently in beta.

We recently posted some of our
thoughts concerns on the upcoming transition from MobileMe to iCloud. Our main concern was that after the 2011 WWDC keynote where Apple announced the new iCloud service they did not give any detail or clarification on how the transition would work and what services would become extinct.
We are assuming that Apple read our post and urgently felt the need to update the good people of New Zealand and today they have posted an official MobileMe to iCloud transition FAQ page. So what’s staying and what’s going? Carry on reading to find out.…Read More
Yesterday in the delirium of the WWDC keynote, iCloud seemed like the business – the all-syncing, all-dancing digital nirvana that we could have only dreamed of a few years ago. And we have a feeling that it will pan out this way in the long run, but right now the web is starting to fill up with questions from concerned Apple customers whose current modus operandi doesn’t seem to fit in with the way we currently understand iCloud to work. Questions like “Will my MobileMe account migrate to iCloud?”, “Can I still share my Apple ID with my family for app purchases and still use iCloud?”, “What happens to iDisk?” and “What about MobileMe Gallery?”. The perception is that Apple are suddenly telling us that the way we use our accounts and sync our phones has to change. Unfortunately, while Cupertino have given us lots of information about how wonderful iCloud is, they’ve neglected to provide answers to important questions like these that would inevitably be on people’s minds. So what answers do we have? Read on.…Read More
Normally we wouldn’t re-post articles direct from another site to the front page, they would site under the ‘FTW’ (from the web) category in the sidebar, but this one seemed to good to pass up. As reported by Chris Keall of NBR although “Telecom may not be an official Apple carrier, its technology-neutral Gen-i division still sells iPhones and iPads– and its boss knows how to use them; including the value-add Mobile Me service, which syncs devices, and can be use used to run a GPS trace.”
So when Mr Quinn had his iPhone stolen, the iPad and MobileMe service came to the rescue.…Read More
Apple is reportedly informing third-party resellers that boxed versions of MobileMe are now discontinued. Retailers can continue to sell their existing inventory, but supplies will not be replenished. This latest information falls in line with earlier rumors that suggest Apple may offer MobileMe as a free service with cloud-based digital lockers for music, photos and videos.Read More
The iPhone has come a long way since iPhone OS 1.0. It has developed from a bare-bones clean slate of a ‘feature phone’ to the sophisticated smart-phone market leader that we know and love in iOS 4.2.1. In terms of everyday usage, there is actually very little that you might have once done on a desktop or laptop PC that you can’t now do on an iPhone or iPad in a just-as-capable but far more enjoyable way. But the one thing that has felt like an unaddressed, gaping hole in the whole eco-system is a file system. The answer lies in cloud storage, and here’s how it should work.…Read More
