I have multiple calendars set up within the calendar so that i have one for each family member and personal things. on any of the devices, i can turn off one or more of the calendars so i dont' have to see them all.
You can also mobile me to save things like pictures, files, etc to the mobileme "cloud", which can work as a back up---or, more commonly, be a way to share the pictures or documents you have with others--even those who don't have mobile me.
The "find your phone or ipad feature" can be a lifesaver. If the feature is turned on on your device, you can get find exactly where it is located. You can also send a message to the screen if someone finds it. One great message to send, that can freak someone out if they stole it is to type the exact address where they are located so it comes on the screen. my friend did this and the "thieves" then returned it to the lost and found at the airport later that day. You can also use it to wipe out your data on the phone, touch, or ipad so that other people can't have access to it.
you also get a mailbox, but i personally don't use that.
you can almost always purchase this cheaper on amazon than through apple. You can also still purchase the older version, sometimes at a reduced cost. The products are the same and you will have the exact same functioning as all you really get is a key code to work the mobile me website.
I highly recommend this---you will love the amount of time and hassle you save. And your family will love that you can send them a link to view photos or files.
recently, i have been uploading things to the idisc feature--word documents and files and it is great as each member can access the idisc information, change it--and it changes it on the idisc and the computer at the idisc icon. this saves us from sending a lot of emails back and forth and getting confused about the most updated version.
UPDATE 11/1/10--This week, my hard drive on my computer crashed. I had back ups of the data but had to manually go through and add the data back to the computer. Which took some time. But what was great was that everything that I had on mobile me--address book, calendar, bookmarks, etc. --i was able to download back to the computer and i think it took less than 2 minutes--it was much faster than the data that i had to transfer over manually. I did have back ups of everything that was on mobile me--but it was so much easier to let the system take care of itself. I have been consistently happy with mobile me--but this incident made me even happier.
I use MobileMe mostly to keep my macs, iPhone, and iPad in sync. I also use the BackToMyMy Mac to share my home Mac's screen when I'm on the road or access file on an external drive attached to my Airport Extreme. I loved when I bought my iPhone 4, I entered my MobileMe account and within seconds, my Safari Bookmarks were on the new phone, and the mail, addressbook and calendars were there as well. I've had some bad luck on iPhones over the years and so this comes in handy. And I love being able to mark a bookmark in Safari on one of my Macs and have it show up on my iPhone and other Macs nearly instantaneously. Same with directory updates.
Although I do backups with TimeMachine, I also use the MobileMe Backup app to move important stuff to the cloud. It is only 20GB, but that is enough to cover the important stuff in the event I simultaneously lost my Macs and backups at home. I'd be able to retrieve it from any network connected computer in the world.
The FindMyIphone feature is now free on new iPhones/iPads but I've used it in the past to find my iPhone when I've misplaced it in the house via alert. Unfortunately, the last time I actually lost an iPhone, it was about six months before the feature became available.
I use the [...] address and aliases mostly for emails from mailing lists/opt-in mail/etc. Even though I have a short dictionary name on the account, I don't get a bunch of spam. My mac address was part of that Gawker account and so more spam is slipping through these days. The [...] web interface for mail/addressbook/calendar/idisk/find my iPhone has the UI of an iPad app from the computer.
Critics of MobileMe say you can do most of the functionality for free or cheaper. But for me, especially at the lower price offered here, everything just works. Even at the lower price, each December I revisit if I'm still getting the best bang for the buck and each year I renew. I also read in one of the gadget blogs that a customer sent Steve Jobs an email about MobileMe and the response was there would be exciting features coming this year.
As for Mobile Me itself... I don't really use the me email address. I already have a few email accounts and don't see the need.
I also don't use the web hosting and storage much. I tested a file upload from my PC and it worked just fine.
I got this mainly for the ability to find my phone and swipe it if necessary. Although this is free for iPhone 4 users, I have the 3GS model and needed mobileme. I have successfully seen my phone on a map to confirm that the phone was indeed in the home AND you can force the phone to RING even if it's set to vibrate only. This is super helpful when trying to find your phone in the house. It's also a huge relief to me to know that I can erase everything on the phone remotely, if it's ever lost or stole.
I have had a bit of a problem sometimes with syncing and getting duplicate contact and appointment entries. A friend tells me this can be fixed with settings changes. However, I haven't had this problem since the renewal.
I am not going to say this is a great value for everyone, but for me it was worth it for the peace of mind.
