Adieu MobileMe!

TidBITS Take Control Ebooks author and iCloud expert Joe Kissell conducted a first for TidBITS on the weekend – a live TidBITS Presents webinar that discussed in detail the implications of Apple’s planned demise of MobileMe services on 30 June. Anchored by TidBITS publisher Adam C Engst, the webinar was a technical breakthrough that utilised Google+ Hangouts to do the webcast, taking real-time questions from participants via Google+ and Twitter, all the while recording the whole 90-minute session on YouTube.

You can replay the YouTube video here.

Congratulations to Joe, Adam and the team behind the scenes for an informative and comprehensive coverage of everything you wanted to ask about the loss of MobileMe forever, and what the transition to iCloud will mean to you.

That said, iCloud is based on personal syncing of your data, images and music between your own devices, but so far I have not seen anything in iCloud that is relevant for GROUPS such as our Mac user group.
