    The really stupid thing about it? Public must be spelled with a capital "P". If you spell it with a lower case "p", it can't find your public folder.

    Lame.

    Nah, what's really stupid is the long url "idisk.mac.com/membername-Public", like a freak'n freebee ISP webspace, at least we're spared the tilde (~) preceeding the membername crap.

    How do you get the upload button to work? By being logged in?

    You have to turn on the "Read & Write" option, rather than Read Only, for your iDisk Public folder in the .Mac control panel in System Preferences.

    My 2¢: this really is a good feature and I wonder what specifically has in mind by including this.
