mobileMe - Wow!

The sleeper announcement at the Apple WWDC was probably mobileMe. It is what MSFT, GOOGL etc. would have loved to build. I had earlier blog entries indicating that I liked .mac & how synchronization is the key to merge the web & devices (eg. SharpCast). Microsoft tried it with LiveMesh but failed before it even took off.(To be fair, I never tried the service) The seamless integration with iPhone, Desktop, Web & even PCs in mobileMe was amazing. No doubt it will be copied by many - it is true that even mobileMe concept is based on Exchange! And yes, I need to get a 3G iPhone this July - now, if only mobileMe was free!
