    worth it to me bc I have two mac computers and an iphone

    if I didn't have all of the above i wouldn't use it

    its nice for keeping my contacts, calendars, and stuff synced across them all

    yes there are other ways to do it, but its just not as convenient as mobileme.

    tru.dat

    Keeps my iMac, iBook, iPhone and Dell :mamoru: in sync with each other.

    I don't use iDisk all too much since I have other options (FTP and Dropbox) but it's handy sometimes.

    I also forward my gmail emails to mobile me, so I get everything pushed straight to my phone :big grin:

    I have Entourage (for work) sync its calendar to ical, then have Things sync my todos to the Entourage generated ical calendar, which then syncs back to Entourage. Then all of the above get synced to my iphone.

    I use dropbox to sync small files, but I use the iDisk for larger files (usually just start the upload and leave home/work, only to find it done when I get where I'm going.

    I wish it wouldnt fuck up my preferences and keychains when they sync between macs though.

    yeah I've heard some things about it not working as advertised, especially with publishing things to mobile me, and email push

    Love it for keeping everything sync'd between all my Macs and my iPhone.

    If you're gonna get it, buy it from Amazon, it's cheaper than buying from Apple directly

    I use it with iWeb as well. Sure I could host it somewhere else, but I'm not interested in making my website publishing any more complex.

    I love it. It works great, and the web apps are amazing. I like the iDisk better than drop box only because it's 20gb rather than 2gb, but both are balls slow when transferring. I'm using MobileMe with my MBP, iPhone, and ThinkPad. Great service and well worth it

    Using mobile me when you need to pick up e-mails from another computer sucks pretty hard. It's gotta be the worst e-mail program around.

    Then maybe it's my lousy Dell laptop, but it seems that me.com is the only site/program that sucks wind when I try doing anything on it. Even forwarding an email can become a huge hassle.
