    I'm just curious, without MobileMe how will we do things like check email online and get to find my iPhone?

    Are you asking about how to check web-based email in the future? I'm guessing Apple will release that when the iCloud is ready.

    Otherwise, you'll need an iOS device or via a Mail app on your Mac/PC.

    Urgh... I hope there is a web based mail client still. That's the only way I can connect to mobileme mail inside my work firewall.

    If they are not going to provide a web client, then I will just forward everything to gmail, and use a gmail account instead.

    I can't imagine there won't be a web client for mail with iCloud. Might not work with IE though... :)

    It sounds like they don't see the need to develop and maintain web versions of iCloud apps anymore. That's probably part of it being free too. They don't need to pay web application developers, just system admins to keep the "cloud running".

    They made a big deal during the keynote about redesigning the web apps. If you notice, the three MobileMe web apps that were most recently updated (Mail, Contacts, Calendar,) are the three that are specifically called out as being major features of iCloud.

    So I have a feeling that those three at minimum (plus, very likely, Find my Device,) will be sticking around.

    Don't worry, they made a big deal out of iCloud providing free email. "Using your existing @me.com or @mac.com address" for existing customers.

    Finally, back to the free email that was 'promised' when Apple first launched iTools.

    I think there will a way to check you email online, since you know that apple brought the iCloud.com from that other company, but right when you type that it in it goes to http://www.apple.com/icloud/, but I think when iCloud is launch you can go to iCloud.com, then it will probally just function like me.com

    Nah, they'll continue to have a web interface for checking your emails.
