    I got this from the Apple Support:

    UPDATED : The website now clarifies the feature as 'coming soon'! MMe support say they have NO IDEA.

    Apple needs to fix

    Apple needs to fix this. Monday morning I want an announcement about the status of online services and what's going on with the 2 missing features.

    That stinks. I was looking forward to this feature as well. Guess we should have known Apple will do whatever it wants.

    Ah yes.... seemingly they've updated the site (4 days later) to mention It'll come soon! When I asked the MMe support, some Jessie reported as she had no clue!

    Now you see the problem I have with the Apple announcement at Post 1 is this.

    MobileMe is supposed to be an "upgrade". Now I reckon an upgrade means that I get to keep all the good stuff I had but now get even more good stuff.

    So instead of making it explicit that MobileMe would not support file sharing they announce it by omission. That is a dreadful way of doing business. I rely on password protected file sharing for some of my business. It's not top secret or really commercially sensitive - it is just good business practice to ensure that only my clients have easy access to the stuff. (I know that I can password my public folder - but what I had before was a public folder I could share and "private" file sharing which I could control. Apple has succeeded in messing up all those pages - and a Public iDisk is no substitute. The announcement that something is coming soon looks like a panic reaction to the mess they have made.
