Apple's MobileMe woes continue

Apple continued to have problems with its new MobileMe service over the weekend and into Monday in the US, with several users unable to access their e-mail.

The Unofficial Apple Weblog has a summary of complaints from its readers up on its site, and sister site CNET has also been contacted by readers as well about problems accessing e-mail accounts that were once known as .Mac, and now fall into the MobileMe service.

Apple's discussion boards are filled with angry MobileMe customers who haven't been able to access their e-mail all weekend in the US.

Apple's MobileMe status page has posted a note that says "1 per cent of MobileMe members cannot access MobileMe Mail. We apologise for any inconvenience." It's just the latest in a series of problems that has plagued the launch of MobileMe, a US$99-a-year service that lets you access contacts, calendars, and other files from one computer on other Macs or PCs, as well as your iPhone.

Apple provided 30 free days of service as a result of the launch issues that also waylaid Apple's iTunes servers and disrupted the iPhone 3G launch. An Apple representative did not immediately return an e-mail seeking comment on what might be causing the problems.

I guess when you hammer the opposition on how their products don't just work you can expect a bit of flack back when a product you have that has issues.

Apples profile is rising along with its user base, demand is higher so is the risk of things not working increase. I am sure of few people in Redmond would be having a giggle to themselves over this one.

1 percent?

It's funny then that everyone I know on MobileMe is in that 1 percent. And that covers 4 continents.....

"It just works"
