Of course, no one can write about Apple without a dig. Here's NPR's: "
In what sense is MobileMe a cloud service for photos and other content? It's far more than that. I mean, I've used MobileMe for years and just recently used it as a cloud service for the first time, placing a text file there that I might need to access from elsewhere. And in what sense is it a flop?Because Apple has had such success with so many of its music products there is a lot of anticipation about iCloud. But, as McGuire and others point out, Apple has had its failures. It already has a cloud service for photos and other content called Mobile Me that's been a flop."

MobileMe's been going for years and has some two million people paying yearly. And, if you actually use several of its features regularly, is an excellent deal for consumers. And, by the way, the name is "MobileMe," not "Mobile Me." This may not be a big deal to some, but it's a trademark, and journalists are trained to be sure to spell trademarks correctly.
