.Mac Service Hiccup



According to MacNN, Apple’s .Mac online service was down today for several hours in both the United States and the UK, though .Mac reports that the site is now functioning just fine.


Users were reportedly unable to open email, backup utilities or web galleries.


The recent news of restrictive browser requirements for iDisk users may have brought bad karma to the site--but it was probably Apple preparing to transition to the new MobileMe service, which will add push email, contacts and photo galleries between Apple and Windows computers and the iPhone/iPod touch.


The new MobileMe service will launch on July 11 and, unlike its predecessor, will be compatible with the latest browsers.
