At WWDC last month, Apple unveiled it’s new MobileMe Service. Adding on to and taking over the previous “dot mac”, MobileMe is an even more well rounded solution. Along with updated name, Apple has added a number of new “Push” services. Push email, contacts, and calendar to be specific.
How Does It Work?
Along with MobileMe comes Apple’s move to cloud computing. This will be nothing new to those familiar with Exchange, but does simplify things a bit. So how does it work? Imagine you are at the computer and add a friend to your list of contacts. A day later you have yet to sync your iPhone, but you are away from the office and need to give that friend a call. With MobileMe, gone is the inconvenience that would normally require a drive back to the house or office to get that number. As soon as you add that contact’s information to Address Book on your Mac, it is instantly sent up to the “cloud”, then resent back down to your Mac, PC, and or iPhone / iPod touch.
