I feel pretty duped by Apple. After watching the guided tour again, I realized that they used the right legal lingo to get away with duping us all.

When the demonstrator in the video talks about iPhone/Web to desktop pushing, he says it happens" in a matter of seconds". Moments later, he gives a desktop to iphone/web example and says it does "automatically" and not in a matter of seconds as the previous example.

I am going to contact Apple's .Me support tomorrow and see what can be done. My purchase decision was based on misleading information.

I guess I'm at a loss, what is MobileMe not doing that you are expecting it to do? I've been getting all my push stuff working for my personal calendar, address books, and mail as reliably as I get it for my Exchange account at work.

Read the text though... It's clearly misleading. 100%. There's no way to interpret it differently. It shows pictures of a mac, a iPhone and a PC and it's showing those as devices. It says I can make the change ANYWHERE from ANY DIRECTION (by the arrows) and it will INSTANTLY AUTOMATICALLY.

- NO MATTER WHAT DEVICE YOU USE (Mac, PC, iPhone)
- NO MATTER WHERE YOU GO (Any app, web app, iPhone app)
- AUTOMATICALLY (yes, it's AUTOMATIC)
- INSTANTLY ( Not from a Mac or PC to the CLOUD, that's only a SYNC EVERY 15)

That's a lot more overhead for millions of people to hit apple's servers every 15 minutes. And when we hack them to check every minute, Apple's servers are going to be overloaded. Push technology is MUCH MORE efficient. It only sends data when there's a change. On sync, it's checking and comparing all the time.
