In my original post, I completely neglected the Back To My Mac feature introduced with OS X Leopard’s release. It was another big feature of .Mac and now MobileMe that I really like to make use of. BTTM worked as somewhat of a mystery to me, until yesterday. AppleInsider has a great post about how this service works.
Its been a little while since MobileMe has been released and the dust has started the settle. There was a lot of attention to the botched launch and even the Steve has weighed in on it with an internal email circulated through Apple. And while the launch had major issues, the service is really impressive.
I should start with a disclaimer – I’m a rather light user at this point. However, that said, the service is working fantastic for me. The web applications rival that of Google, in my opinion. The calendaring application is particularly slick. It mimics the workings of iCal very well within a web browser.
