A few months ago, we posted a how to on moving your existing iWeb sites to a dedicated web hosting solution. Since then, more information about the MobileMe-to-iCloud transition has emerged that describes exactly how Apple will phase out the iWeb site hosting that has been a vital part of .Mac and MobileMe for the past few years.
As we edge closer to September, the August rumor cycle begins steaming up. Will September 7 prove the magic day? Will the iPhone 5 make its appearance? Will you be able to buy it that day? And what about this mysterious discount iPhone we keep hearing about? Prepaid? All in the cloud? What gives?
Apple released iOS 5 Beta 5 over the weekend, along with a handful of related bits and pieces, including the ability for developers to migrate their MobileMe accounts to the forthcoming iCloud right now -- which has uncovered some unpleasant news for those who use some of the more obscure sync features in MobileMe.
After demoing the MobileMe replacement, iCloud at the World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) earlier this summer, we've been eagerly awaiting a chance to play with the service. Earlier this week, the company launched the web-based version of iCloud beta. However, there is still some confusion about how to register for this service, we’ll show you the steps required to convert your Apple ID into an iCloud-ready account.
It’s not surprising that any number of things can go wrong during a major operating system upgrade, especially considering the potential number of different user configurations and computers available. OS X Lion has purred along for most users (UI changes aside), but that doesn’t mean one or two bugaboos can’t be lurking in the big cat’s furry mane.
As great as iOS is, it’s had one missing feature since the days of the original iPhone: lack of built-in to-do management. That will change with iOS 5’s upcoming Reminders app, but you can take charge of to-do’s today with BusyToDo, which brings familiar to-do management to your iDevice. How familiar? Picture iCal’s to-do features, then imagine most of them transplanted to a no-nonsense iOS app. That’s BusyToDo.
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".
Happy Father's Day to everyone out there. We know, we know, you were spending so much time looking for that perfect gift for dad (i.e., tie) that maybe you might have missed a few stories this week. Well, that's all right, you know, because like dad, we're always toiling in the background, making sure you have food on the table and a roof over your head and plenty to read. So here you go. Don't say we never gave you anything. And shut the door already, were you born in a barn?
Are you a long-time MobileMe subscriber and allured by the niceties that iCloud will bring, but are wondering what you will miss after switching over? While Apple has yet to release their plan of action for switching users over to the new service and a lot of users are wondering what will change come this fall. We hope to answer some of those questions by doing a side-by-side comparison of iCloud and MobileMe.
With Apple’s recent announcement of iCloud, many MobileMe users have been wondering what will happen to their current services once the switch to iCloud becomes official. An alleged email from Steve Jobs claims that iWeb sites hosted on MobileMe may bite the dust when Apple flips the iCloud switch. And even though Apple has already renewed everyone’s MobileMe registration until Jun 30, 2012, it’s no guarantee that MobileMe iWeb hosting will be available for that length of time. In the meantime, however, you might want to take the necessary precautions. We’ll show you how to begin the transition of your iWeb sites to a dedicated hosting solution.
