With Back to My Mac, you can access your Mac’s hard drive and swap files from any Internet-connected Mac running OS X Lion (10.7.5) or later. You can also use Screen Sharing to open applications and edit files on another Mac, to access other machines on your home network, or even to upload important files to iCloud.com.
Apple released new information today regarding the pending transition from MobileMe to iCloud. Finally, we know which services will be continued and which will be terminated with extreme prejudice. According to Apple, "The core services provided by MobileMe have been rewritten to work seamlessly with iCloud." The key word there is "core", which is not the same as "all".
If imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, a number of Apple's competitors must be blushing in the wake of WWDC 2011. With Cupertino's unveiling of iMessages -- a service that may sound all too familiar to users of RIM's BlackBerry messaging service -- and a number of system tweaks for iOS that mimic the features offered by a number of apps available via the Cydia App Store, it appears that Apple is paying close attention to what their business rivals have been doing.
As stoked as we are to see these great perks coming to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users this fall, we feel there's a few more tricks that Apple could learn from the other guys. Here are five of our favorites.
Now that Apple has officially revealed what iCloud will contain when it launches this fall, it’s time to sit back and look at what the service isn’t going to bring to our lives. Sure, we know it’s free, but we hang with that “glass half empty” kind of crowd.
I use a MacBook Air for work, which keeps my backpack light. I’d like your recommendation for software that will let me access my iMac at home from the MacBook Air. I just want to access the iMac to retrieve a file, maybe an email, and that’s it. I know there’s LogMeIn and Back to My Mac (I’m a MobileMe subscriber), but I’d appreciate your expert opinion.
MobileMe got off to a fairly bad start last year, however in 2009 the service continues to improve, but not without problems. Recently, a new feature present on Time Capsule has encountered issues with the Apple cloud.
