Still a 1%er
Some email service via web only returned a couple of days ago. The "some" is limited to a email from July 24th on. None of the previous email has appeared yet.
According to blogs and articles Apple has never intended the dot Mac or the new Me Generation products for business use. I think implying that the service is not intended to be reliable. So far that is an accurate statement.
So who is Apple's market for the Me Generation product? Who doesn't expect reliability from the products they buy?
I bought several accounts for my family so they could have email and iChat. So far no one is using the Cloud, syncing their calendar or using the extremely slow iDisk. As a result of this outage I have found that gMail works like Apple Mail and I suspect if I look around their is another version of iChat that will work. The one person I really want to iChat with is my son in Portland but Comcast took exception to using video. Make buying Me Generation products look less attractive, especially at this time.
Can you imagine being in the meeting that came up with the Cloud metaphor, thinking adults would think Cloud would be a good name?
